There is some suggestion that the ability to detect blur may be altered in adults with myopia. Here, we address the question of whether children with myopia have worse blur detection than other children, and whether blur detection in myopic children is related to the rate of myopia progression. We recruited 20 myopes and 20 non-myopes aged between 8 and 12(More)
Determination of two-dimensional characteristics of the anterior surface of the eye is becoming increasingly important in modern optometry and ophthalmology practice. In particular, accurate estimation of the pupil size and centration is crucial in customized refractive surgery, corneal transplantation, and advanced contact lens fitting. The pupil(More)
It is known that the depth of focus (DOF) of the human eye can be affected by the higher order aberrations. We estimated the optimal combinations of primary and secondary Zernike spherical aberration to expand the DOF and evaluated their efficiency in real eyes using an adaptive optics system. The ratio between increased DOF and loss of visual acuity was(More)
Non-stationary time series are common in practice and distinguishing them from stationary series has important implications for estimation, identification and forecasting as stationarity models often lead to simpler solutions. We develop a statistical test for stationarity based on the ratio of the arithmetic to geometric means of spectra obtained from(More)
We propose a new resampling scheme that takes literally the concept of the non-parametric bootstrap in which new samples are generated from the empirical distribution function. The introduced resampling concept is totally heuristic, but already shows promising results when applied to model selection. We show that for a range of linear models, the proposed(More)
Zernike polynomials are often used as an expansion of corneal height data and for analysis of optical wavefronts. Accurate modeling of corneal surfaces with Zernike polynomials involves selecting the order of the polynomial expansion based on the measured data. We have compared the efficacy of various classical model order selection techniques that can be(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the diurnal variation in axial length and anterior eye biometrics, while simultaneously measuring intraocular pressure (IOP) with dynamic contour tonometry in human subjects. METHODS Fifteen young adult near-emmetropic subjects had axial length, anterior eye biometrics (central corneal thickness and anterior chamber dimensions), and(More)
Analysis was undertaken of the retinal image characteristics of the best-spectacle corrected eyes of progressing myopes (n = 20, mean age = 22 years; mean spherical equivalent = -3.84 D) and a control group of emmetropes (n = 20, mean age = 23 years; mean spherical equivalent = 0.00 D) before and after a 2h reading task. Retinal image quality was calculated(More)
PURPOSE Videokeratoscopes provide a wealth of information about the topography of the ocular surface. Although there have been numerous studies of the accuracy and precision of videokeratoscopes with inanimate test objects, little information exists on their precision (repeatability) for real eyes. METHODS To investigate the stability of the ocular(More)
