In this work we present the design of a novel ophthalmic prismatic contact lens to correct for strabismus. Strabismus, colloquially called "crossed-eyes" or "wall eyes," is a condition in which the eyes are not properly aligned with each other. To our knowledge there are no contact lenses that allow for strabismus correction. To address this, we have designed a poly methyl methacrylate (PMMA) based prismatic correction contact lens. Therefore, we modeled a Fresnel lens with the appropriate… 
Imaging performance of an ultra-precision machining-based Fresnel lens in ophthalmic devices.
This study obviates the limitations of the tool nose radius constraint and the long tool path via ultra-precision machining of the modified Fresnel lens, ensuring a constant pitch of 0.1 mm and varying the height of straight grooves from 0 to 11 µm.
Contact Lens Materials: A Materials Science Perspective
This review provides an advanced perspective on contact lens materials, with an emphasis on materials science employed in developing new CLs, and provides viewpoints of precision manufacturing in CL development.


Contribution of the crystalline lens gradient refractive index to the accommodation amplitude in non-human primates: in vitro studies.
The gradient contributes on average 65 ±3% for monkeys and 66 ± 3% for baboons to the total power change during accommodation, consistent with Gullstrand's intracapsular theory of accommodation.
The Optical Design of the Human Eye: a Critical Review
Cornea, lens and eye models are analyzed and compared to experimental findings to assess properties and eventually unveil optical design principles involved in the structure and function of the
Variability of Ocular Deviation in Strabismus.
In patients with strabismus, even without amblyopia, the deviated eye is more variable in position than the fixating eye and both eyes are less stable in Position than the eyes of control individuals, which indicates that strabistismus impairs the ability to fixate targets steadily.
Refractive index measurements of poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) from 0.4-1.6 μm.
Using a transmission-spectrum-based method, the refractive index of a 50 μm thick sample of poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) was measured as a function of wavelength. To mitigate the effects of
Computer‐assisted dosage calculation for strabismus therapy in myopic patients
This study investigates whether computer simulations of the oculomotor plant can be used to find accurate surgical parameters for the surgical correction of horizontal strabismus in non‐myopic patients.
What is an air mass 1.5 spectrum? (solar cell performance calculations)
The origin of the AM 1.5 spectra, how they are related to actual outdoor spectral distributions, and the implications for outdoor PV (photovoltaic) performance predictions are explained. It is

It is shown that analysis of energy streamlines provides a helpful supplementary perspective on wave transmission through interfaces and a simple refraction law is derived for energy stream lines of acoustic and linearly polarized electromagnetic waves.
