PURPOSE To compare the subjective visual and objective optical performance of 2 aspherical intraocular lenses (IOLs), the Akreos Adapt Advanced Optics (AO) (Bausch & Lomb, Inc.) and the Tecnis Z9000 (Advanced Medical Optics, Inc.). SETTING Four university hospitals in Sweden. METHODS This study comprised 80 patients, 20 each from 4 university hospital(More)
The long-term aim of the work introduced here is to investigate the influence of off-axis aberrations on human vision, especially for subjects with a large central scotoma. The latter use their peripheral vision in spite of its poor off-axis optical quality, and a correction of the off-axis aberrations might be of great assistance. The eccentric fixation(More)
PURPOSE Peripheral optical corrections are often thought to give few visual benefits beyond improved detection acuity. However, patients with central visual field loss seem to benefit from peripheral correction, and animal studies suggest a role for peripheral vision in the development of myopia. This study was conducted to bridge this gap by systematically(More)
Retinal sampling poses a fundamental limit to resolution acuity in the periphery. However, reduced image quality from optical aberrations may also influence peripheral resolution. In this study, we investigate the impact of different degrees of optical correction on acuity in the periphery. We used an adaptive optics system to measure and modify the(More)
We present a population study of peripheral wavefront aberrations in large off-axis angles in terms of Zernike coefficients. A laboratory Hartmann-Shack sensor was used to assess the aberrations in 0 degrees, 20 degrees, and 30 degrees in the nasal visual field of 43 normal eyes. The elliptical pupil meant that the quantification could be done in different(More)
PURPOSE This study investigates the benefits of eccentric refractive correction to resolution and detection thresholds in different contrasts for seven subjects with central visual field loss (CFL) and for four healthy control subjects with normal vision. METHODS Refractive correction in eccentric viewing angles, i.e., the preferred retinal location for(More)
PURPOSE When performing perimetry, refracting subjects with central visual field loss, and in emmetropization studies, it is important to accurately measure peripheral refractive errors. Traditional methods for foveal refraction often give uncertain results in eccentric angles as a result of the large aberrations and the reduced retinal function. The aim of(More)
BACKGROUND Subjects with absolute central visual field loss use eccentric fixation and magnifying devices to utilize their residual vision. This preliminary study investigated the importance of an accurate eccentric correction of off-axis refractive errors to optimize the residual visual function for these subjects. METHODS Photorefraction using the(More)
Measuring the contrast sensitivity function (CSF) in the periphery of the eye is complicated. The lengthy measurement time precludes all but the most determined subjects. The aim of this study was to implement and evaluate a faster routine based on the quick CSF method (qCSF) but adapted to work in the periphery. Additionally, normative data is presented on(More)
Zernike polynomials and their associated coefficients are commonly used to quantify the wavefront aberrations of the eye. When the aberrations of different eyes, pupil sizes, or corrections are compared or averaged, it is important that the Zernike coefficients have been calculated for the correct size, position, orientation, and shape of the pupil. We(More)
