PURPOSE To report an advanced optical procedure developed for the diagnosis of a particular case of diplopia. METHODS This approach combined the quantification of the level of intraocular scattering by using an Objective Scatter Index provided by a double-pass instrument (Optical Quality Analysis System) with the analysis of higher order aberrations using a Hartmann-Shack wavefront sensor. RESULTS The value of the Objective Scatter Index revealed increased intraocular scattering; the…

Retinal point-spread function after corneal transplantation for Fuchs' dystrophy.
The degradation of the small-angle domain of the point-spread function after DSEK suggests that aberrations contribute to decreased visual acuity after DSI, and can be attributed to the retained host cornea with older recipient age.


Wavefront analysis of eye with monocular diplopia and cortical cataract.
Wavefront analysis of an eye with monocular triplopia and nuclear cataract.
Calculated impact of higher-order monochromatic aberrations on retinal image quality in a population of human eyes.
The impact of higher-order aberrations on retinal image quality and the magnitude of the visual benefit expected from their correction in a large population of human eyes are calculated and theoretical benefits could be realized in normal viewing conditions but only under specific conditions.

Most subjects in whom monocular diplopia can be demonstrated under the right conditions have not previously been aware of it, and visual acuity, as measured by the usual methods, is seldom affected.

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.
