A doublet intraocular lens optimized for both chromatic and monochromatic aberration correction in pseudophakic eyes is presented. Ray-tracing techniques were applied to design the lens in white light within a chromatic eye model. Combinations of two materials, already commonly used in intraocular lenses, as acrylic and silicone, were used. Iterative optimization algorithms were employed to correct for longitudinal chromatic aberration, spherical aberration and off-axis aberrations within 10… Expand

Adaptation to the eye's chromatic aberration measured with an adaptive optics visual simulator.
The results suggest that some LCA neural adaptation may exist, particularly for low contrast VA, which impacts the performance of vision under corrected LCA, and possibly prevents measurement for immediate visual benefit. Expand

Chromatic aberration and polychromatic image quality with diffractive multifocal intraocular lenses
Achromatization by the diffractive IOL provided significant improvement in polychromatic retinal image quality along with apodization and higher‐order aberrations, it can significantly affect the near–distance balance provided by a diffractive multifocal IOL. Expand

Binocular visual acuity for the correction of spherical aberration in polychromatic and monochromatic light.
Bilateral correction of both SA and LCA may further improve binocular spatial visual acuity which may support the use of aspheric-achromatic ophthalmic devices, in particular, intraocular lenses (IOLs). Expand

Improvements in contrast sensitivity and visual acuity are demonstrated in white light and in monochromatic light when adaptive optics corrects the eye's higher-order monochromaatic aberrations. Expand
Visual effect of the combined correction of spherical and longitudinal chromatic aberrations.
The visual improvement provided by the correction of SA was higher than that from correcting LCA, while the combined correction of LCA and SA provided the best visual performance, suggesting that an aspheric achromatic IOL may provide some visual benefit when compared to standard IOLs. Expand
Compensation of corneal aberrations by the internal optics in the human eye.
The amount of aberration of both the cornea and internal optics was found to be larger than for the complete eye, indicating that the first surface of the corneal topography and the internal ocular optics partially compensate for each other's aberrations and produce an improved retinal image.

Predicting the optical performance of eyes implanted with IOLs to correct spherical aberration.
A "virtual surgery" approach was designed to predict the optical performance in pseudophakic eyes and the aberrations of implanted eyes predicted by the individualized optical models were well correlated with the actual aberration measured in each subject. Expand
Accommodating intraocular lenses: a critical review of present and future concepts
Laser interferometry measures what shift lenses are designed to provide: axial shift on accommodative effort and magnet-driven active-shift lens systems carry the potential of sufficiently topping up apparent accommodation to provide for clinically useful accommodation while using conventional lens designs with proven after-cataract performance.
