Measurement of the eye's wave aberrations has become fairly standard in recent years. However, most studies have not taken into account the possible influence of the polarization state of light on the wave aberration measurements. The birefringence properties of the eye's optical components, in particular corneal birefringence, can be expected to have an effect on the wave aberration estimates obtained under different states of polarization for the measurement light. In the work described, we… Expand
A wavelength tunable wavefront sensor for the human eye.
TLDR
This is the first report of a device to objectively determine the spectral fluctuations in the ocular wavefront and the wavelength dependence of coma and spherical aberration as examples of higher-order aberration terms. Expand
Optical aberrations in ametropic eyes and their change with corneal refractive surgery
In this thesis the laser ray tracing (LRT) technique for measurement of ocular aberrations has been implemented, validated and applied, in conjunction with complementary techniques, to the study ofExpand
Ocular aberrations with ray tracing and Shack-Hartmann wave-front sensors: does polarization play a role?
TLDR
The results indicate that the differences in retardation across the pupil imposed by corneal birefringence do not produce significant phase delays compared with those produced by aberrations, at least within the accuracy of these techniques. Expand
Combined effect of wavelength and polarization in double-pass retinal images in the human eye
TLDR
Ocular diattenuation presented individual differences, however significant changes were not found across the different wavelengths, and the Stokes vectors providing the maximum intensity transmittance varied across subjects and corresponded to elliptically polarized light. Expand

TLDR
The paper discusses state of the art technology to measure the aberrations of the eye (cornea and crystalline lens), both monochromatic and polychromatic, which has been used to advance the understanding on several visual mechanisms, ocular conditions, and corrective methods. Expand
Corneal polarimetry after LASIK refractive surgery.
TLDR
An aberro-polariscope is used to determine and to compare the spatially resolved maps of polarization parameters across the pupil between normal healthy and post-LASIK eyes, finding changes in polarization indicate subtle structural modifications of the cornea. Expand
Microfluctuations of wavefront aberrations of the eye
TLDR
Higher order aberrations appear to be related to the cardiopulmonary system in a similar way to that reported for the accommodation signal and pupil fluctuations. Expand

TLDR
The eye is an optical instrument that projects scenes of the visual world onto the retina and suffers from other optical imperfections (called high-order aberrations), which are not typically measured in the clinic and cannot be corrected by conventional means. Expand
Aberro-polariscope for the human eye.
TLDR
An aberro-polariscope that simultaneously measures spatially resolved polarization properties and wave-front aberration in a living human eye is developed and useful information on both the optical and the biomechanical properties of the eye to be obtained. Expand

TLDR
An apparatus based on a liquid crystal programmable phase modulator is described and its capabilities as a tool in the early stages of the design of ophthalmic optical elements with increased depth of field for presbyopic subjects are explored. Expand

A new approach to the study of ocular chromatic aberrations
TLDR
The results from these experiments were used to compute the image quality of the eye in polychromatic light and estimate the achromatic axis and both optical and perceived transverse chromatic aberration (TCA). Expand

TLDR
A wave-front sensor is constructed to measure the irregular as well as the classical aberrations of the eye, providing a more complete description of the Eye, indicating that they are not random defects. Expand

TLDR
Calculation of a simple "optimal surgical shape" for wave-front guided refractive surgery will depend on improved understanding of the interplay between the biological and physical properties of the eye. Expand
Dynamics of the eye's wave aberration.
TLDR
Calculations suggest that a perfect adaptive optics system with a closed-loop bandwidth of 1-2 Hz could correct these aberrations well enough to achieve diffraction-limited imaging over a dilated pupil. Expand
Correction of the aberrations in the human eye with a liquid-crystal spatial light modulator: limits to performance.
TLDR
It is shown that the spatial resolution of the liquid-crystal spatial light modulator limits the maximum correction to be attained, and the changes in the ocular optics over time also impose a limit in the performance of static corrections. Expand

TLDR
A computational technique to retrieve the wave aberration of the eye from the point-spread function obtained from pairs of double-pass retinal images is applied, and results of wave aberrations in five normal subjects in the fovea for a 4-mm-pupil diameter are presented. Expand

TLDR
It is found that the retinal image or, alternatively, the ocular aberrations, are nearly independent of the state of polarization of the incident light (in the first pass), which means that a significant improvement in the Ocular optics by using a specific type of polarized light could not be achieved.

It is posited that the cornea behaves as a biaxial crystal with its fastest principal axis normal to its surface and its slowest nasally downward. Expand
