(Dorland, 27th ed)Lens, Crystalline: A transparent, biconvex structure of the EYE, enclosed in a capsule and situated behind the IRIS and in front of the vitreous humor (VITREOUS BODY). It is slightly overlapped at its margin by the ciliary processes. Adaptation by the CILIARY BODY is crucial for OCULAR ACCOMMODATION.Cataract Extraction: The removal of a cataractous CRYSTALLINE LENS from the eye.Astigmatism: Unequal curvature of the refractive surfaces of the eye. Thus a point source of light cannot be brought to a point focus on the retina but is spread over a more or less diffuse area. This results from the radius of curvature in one plane being longer or shorter than the radius at right angles to it. (Dorland, 27th ed)Keratectomy, Subepithelial, Laser-Assisted: A surgical technique to correct REFRACTIVE ERRORS of the EYE, such as MYOPIA and ASTIGMATISM. In this method, a flap of CORNEAL EPITHELIUM is created by exposure of the area to dilute alcohol. The flap is lifted and then replaced after laser ablation of the subepithelial CORNEA.Keratomileusis, Laser In Situ: A surgical procedure to correct MYOPIA by CORNEAL STROMA subtraction. It involves the use of a microkeratome to make a lamellar dissection of the CORNEA creating a flap with intact CORNEAL EPITHELIUM. After the flap is lifted, the underlying midstroma is reshaped with an EXCIMER LASER and the flap is returned to its original position.Lasers, Excimer: Gas lasers with excited dimers (i.e., excimers) as the active medium. The most commonly used are rare gas monohalides (e.g., argon fluoride, xenon chloride). Their principal emission wavelengths are in the ultraviolet range and depend on the monohalide used (e.g., 193 nm for ArF, 308 nm for Xe Cl). These lasers are operated in pulsed and Q-switched modes and used in photoablative decomposition involving actual removal of tissue.

An EXCIMER LASER is used directly on the surface of the EYE to remove some of the CORNEAL EPITHELIUM thus reshaping the anterior curvature of the cornea.Hyperopia: A refractive error in which rays of light entering the eye parallel to the optic axis are brought to a focus behind the retina, as a result of the eyeball being too short from front to back. It is also called farsightedness because the near point is more distant than it is in emmetropia with an equal amplitude of accommodation. (Dorland, 27th ed)Refractive Surgical Procedures: Surgical procedures employed to correct REFRACTIVE ERRORS such as MYOPIA; HYPEROPIA; or ASTIGMATISM. These may involve altering the curvature of the CORNEA; removal or replacement of the CRYSTALLINE LENS; or modification of the SCLERA to change the axial length of the eye.Keratotomy, Radial: A procedure to surgically correct REFRACTIVE ERRORS by cutting radial slits into the CORNEA to change its refractive properties.Optometry: The professional practice of primary eye and vision care that includes the measurement of visual refractive power and the correction of visual defects with lenses or glasses.Textbooks as Topic: Books used in the study of a subject that contain a systematic presentation of the principles and vocabulary of a subject.Pupil: The aperture in the iris through which light passes.Amblyopia: A nonspecific term referring to impaired vision.

Figure 4 shows some mean higher-order aberration coefficients, higher-order root-mean-squared aberrations (HORMS) and total RMS aberrations excluding defocus (total RMS) for the two groups across the visual field. Other higher-order coefficients are not shown, as they had little or no regular pattern across the visual field and were small in magnitude. For each refractive group, oblique trefoil C 3 −3 decreased from the top to the bottom of the field (Aa, Ba). It was more negative, or less positive, for the myopic group than for the emmetropic group (Aa, Ba). The most prominent differences between the two groups were seen in the vertical C 3 −1 (Ab, Bb) and horizontal C 3 1 coma (Ac, Bc) coefficients, both of which tended to be relatively large in comparison to the other higher-order coefficients. Vertical coma C 3 −1 increased linearly from the superior to the inferior visual field and horizontal coma C 3 1 increased from the nasal to the temporal visual field. Emmetropes had slightly ...
DISCUSSION. Over the last few years, the impact of higher order aberrations on visual development and emmetropization has been the source of much debate. Brunette et al. described significant levels of higher order aberrations in children, but these higher order aberrations tended to decrease with growth, possibly as part of emmetropization(8). Studies have shown that lower order aberrations are responsible for about 90% of the quality of retinal images and that the remaining 10% is a combination of the effects of various higher order aberrations(9). However, higher order aberrations do not interact with each other in a linear algebraic manner(10,11); in fact, the effects of the different aberrations tend to compensate for each other(4,12). According to the work of Kelly et al., corneal optical aberrations are often compensated by internal ocular aberrations; therefore, the measurement of corneal wavefront aberrometry alone may produce inaccurate information about the retinal image quality(12). ...
PURPOSE: To manufacture and test a set of phase plates for the calibration of ocular aberrometers and apply it to the calibration of an ocular laser ray tracing aberrometer. METHODS: The set of phase plates is made by a greyscale single-mask photosculpture in photoresist method. Each plate induces a given amount of a particular aberration (Zernike) mode. The set contains two subsets: 1) pure Zernike modes to test the accuracy among different orders (from 3rd to 7th, approximately 0.3 to 0.4 μm); and 2) plates having different amounts of the same mode, 3rd order coma ranging from 0.11 to 0.47 μm. After manufacturing, the plates were tested twice, as a crosscheck, measuring the aberration pattern of each plate with a Mach-Zehnder interferometer and a single-pass Hartmann-Shack wavefront sensor. The set was then applied to the calibration of an ocular double-pass laser ray tracing aberrometer. RESULTS: Close agreement was found between the three types of measurement. The maximum difference ...
Aberrant activity of the MAP and PI3 kinases is implicated in many forms of cancer. The ability to gather quantifiable information on the activation state of these kinases from limited in-vitro and in-vivo tumor samples would accelerate drug development and ultimately, the treatment of cancer. In this BioScale poster, presented at ELRIG Drug Discovery 2012, non-optical acoustic membrane microparticle (AMMP®) technology was used to quantitate the activity state of multiple kinases including EGFR,
Optical correction methods, devices, and systems reduce optical aberrations or inhibit refractive surgery induced aberrations. Error source control and adjustment or optimization of ablation profiles or other optical data address high order aberrations. A simulation approach identifies and characterizes system factors that can contribute to, or that can be adjusted to inhibit, optical aberrations. Modeling effects of system components facilitates adjustment of the system parameters.

However, as the eye ages from the young adulthood (20-30 years) to the elderly (60-80 years) it becomes more aberrated on average. In particular, the spherical aberration (SA) of the eye tends to increase in older eyes. Similarly, a significant increment of horizontal coma and other third-order aberrations has been reported. In a previous work (Artal et al., 2002), we showed that a progressive disruption of the corneal-internal aberrations balance was the primary source of increment of ocular aberrations in older eyes. However, the underlying causes of this mechanism remain unclear. To answer the question, it is necessary to improve our understanding about how ocular aberrations are generated and how the compensation mechanism works. Ocular aberrations may have an intrinsic origin related to the shape of the surfaces or the profile of the refractive index, or an angular origin associated with the alignment of the optical components. The combination of intrinsic factors makes the cornea of a ...

Purpose: To correlate subjective visual performance responses with through-focus retinal image quality (RIQ) metrics obtained on presbyopic participants fitted with single vision (SV) and multifocal (MF) contact lenses.. Methods: Thirteen presbyopic participants (50.2 ± 3.5 years, SE: +1.38 to -5.50D) who needed adds of +1.00 or +1.25D were fitted bilaterally with AirOptix Aqua™ SV and AirOptix Aqua™ MF lenses [Alcon, USA]. Using the EyeMapper, a global aberrometer, on-axis ocular wavefront aberration profiles with lenses were captured. Five independent repeats were performed under natural pupils. Additionally, participants pupil sizes were measured at different illumination conditions (scotopic (0 Lux), mesopic (80 Lux) and photopic (300 Lux)) using a custom-built instrument. Post-processing routines in Matlab using the 6th order Zernike polynomial (z1 to z28) obtained from the EyeMapper yielded through-focus retinal image quality metrics (visual Strehl Ratio in the Fourier domain) over ...

The aim of this study was to use a Shack-Hartmann clinical aberrometer (COAS, Wavefront Sciences Ltd) to evaluate the variability of low- and higher-order aberration measurement of the eye. Using the wave aberration polynomial determined for a full-size pupil we compared the Zernike expansion coefficients for a smaller, 3 mm pupil derived by two methods: first, by re-calculating the wave aberration coefficients to the reduced sampled points corresponding to that pupil ("direct" method), and, second, by using a matrix method to reconstruct a new set of coefficients appropriate for the reduced pupil ("scaling" method) (see figure 1).. Our results suggest that, for full-size pupil, the efficiency of the measurements varies across x and y pupil position: where the wavefront is larger, measurement variance is higher, especially near the margins of the pupil, where increased standard deviation results to higher wave-aberration error. Some of this increased variance may have been due to poorer image ...
LASIK which is customised according to the patients own optical (eye) aberrations is called custom-vue LASIK or wavefront guided LASIK.. What are optical aberration?. Optical aberration are the natural defects in the refractive state/mechanism of the eye due to which the patient cannot focus and see objects clearly. There are different types of optical aberrations. Lower order aberrations are rectified in a normal LASIK but for significant higher order aberrations, wavefront guided LASIK is required.. What is done in custom-vue LASIK or wavefront guided LASIK?. Firstly, the patients eyes are scanned to find out its optical aberrations. Then, this data is fed into the LASIK machine, where the computer generates the laser for rectifying these errors, according to the individual optical aberrations, during LASIK surgery.. Do all cases require custom-vue LASIK or wavefront guided LASIK?. This depends upon the type of optical aberrations present in ones eye. For lower order aberrations normal ...
We studied the age dependence of the relative contributions of the aberrations of the cornea and the internal ocular surfaces to the total aberrations of the eye. We measured the wave-front aberration of the eye with a Hartmann-Shack sensor and the aberrations of the anterior corneal surface from the elevation data provided by a corneal topography system. The aberrations of the internal surfaces were obtained by direct subtraction of the ocular and corneal wave-front data. Measurements were obtained for normal healthy subjects with ages ranging from 20 to 70 years. The magnitude of the RMS wave-front aberration (excluding defocus and astigmatism) of the eye increases more than threefold within the age range considered. However, the aberrations of the anterior corneal surface increase only slightly with age. In most of the younger subjects, total ocular aberrations are lower than corneal aberrations, while in the older subjects the reverse condition occurs. Astigmatism, coma, and spherical ...
Based on a simple eye model system, a high resolution adaptive optics retina imaging system was built to demonstrate the availability of using liquid crystal devices as a wave-front corrector for both low and high order aberrations. Myopia glass was used to introduce large low order aberrations. A fiber bundle was used to simulate the retina. After correction, its image at different diopters became very clear. We can get a root mean square(RMS) correction precision of lower than 0.049λ (λ =0.63μm) for over to 10 diopters and the modulation transfer function (MTF) retains 51lp/mm, which is nearly the diffraction limited resolution for a 2.7mm pupil diameter. The closed loop bandwidth was nearly 4 Hz, which is capable to track most of the aberration dynamics in a real eye.. ©2007 Optical Society of America. Full Article , PDF Article ...
An aspect of the present invention relates to a method of manufacturing an eyeglass lens, which comprises a step of conducting polishing processing of a non-optical surface of a semifinished lens, one surface of which is an optical surface and the other surface of which is the non-optical surface, to create an optical surface. The semifinished lens comprises an acrylic coating on an optical surface of a lens substrate, a surface of the acrylic coating having a contact angle relative to water of equal to or less than 90.degree., prior to the polishing processing, a protective film is adhered through an adhesive layer of the film to the surface of the acrylic coating, and the polishing processing is conducted by polishing a non-optical surface of the lens substrate in a state where the protective film surface is secured in a block jig.
The Shack-Hartmann or Hartmann-Shack wavefront sensors are particular forms of the Hartmann sensor and are the most commonly used in adaptive optics. The traditional Hartmann screen in the pupil is replaced by an array of small lenslets at a conjugate to an image of the pupil or deformable mirror. Each lenslet forms an independent image of the incoming wavefront. Shifts in the positions of these images can be shown by simple geometric optics to be proportional to the mean wavefront gradient over each lenslet. The measurement range or dynamic range of a conventional Shack-Hartmann sensor is normally limited by the sub-aperture size of the detector plane, in which each spot should remain. In order to overcome this restriction, several methods, such as modified unwrapped algorithm or a spatial-light modulator as a shutter, have been proposed. We first simulated the image forming of a conventional Shack-Hartmann wavefront sensor for highly aberrated spherical aberrations through computer simulation, ...
Forty eyes of 40 patients were divided into group A (K max up to 60D) and B (K max from 61 to 75D). Eyes were also divided into two sub-groups according to the corneal astigmatism (cutoff value of 5D). For aberrometric and kappa distance measurements, OPDScan III was used. "P dist" (kappa distance) was defined as distance between the first Purkinje image and the center of the photopic pupil. Aberrometry was extracted from the central 5mm zone. Correlation between the change of kappa distance with the change of spherical aberration was also done. Right and left eyes were analyzed separately ...
An apparatus and method for characterizing an energy beam (such as a laser) with a two-dimensional wavefront sensor, such as a Shack-Hartmann lenslet array. The sensor measures wavefront slope and irradiance of the beam at a single point on the beam and calculates a space-beamwidth product. A detector array such as a charge coupled device camera is preferably employed.

Non-optical devices and modifications do not use lenses to magnify images. Instead, they increase lighting levels, improve contrast, decrease the effects of glare, or increase print size to make objects and print more easily visible. Examples include high-intensity table or floor lamps, large print reading materials, electronic video magnifiers, and iPads and tablets. Absorptive lenses are sunglasses that filter out ultraviolet and infrared light, reduce glare, and increase contrast. Non-optical devices can also be used in combination with magnifiers and other low-vision optical devices..

Clocks and timers with large numerals, writing guides, needle threaders, large print or talking watches, large print and tactile labels, and talking pill bottles are examples of such equipment.. ...
What many experts are just now beginning to look at is the effects of different wireless systems on each other and how they mix and magnify each other. So if you have wifi on, that creates a very strong blanket signal which will then magnify the signals from other devices such as your computer, the mouse, cordless phones, cell phones, etc. You should also check to see if you are near any communications antennas, or cell towers... those can really amp up everything in your house. I used to be located within 200 feet of a major cell tower installation with more than 50 antennas on the roof of a nearby building, with a straight shot into my living room.

Every eye possesses a number of aberrations. However, in a KC patients eye, there are approximately five to six times the numbers of high-order aberrations (HOAs) than in a healthy eye. Using this technology to detect and assess the HOAs, it was found that in a KC cornea, it is possible to detect at a very early stage a much higher value of vertical coma aberrations compared with a normal eye. By using this technology, it is possible to study and understand the characteristics of the quality of the image on the retina, thereby understanding its impact on the patients visual quality ...
Digital reproductions of any size made from images scanned from film or taken by an electronic camera are optimally sharpened in a system-wide operation. The images are captured by an imaging device having an electronic imager and subsequently reproduced in a reproduction device, both imaging and reproduction devices having respective modulation transfer functions. Initially, the imaging device modulation transfer function and the reproduction device modulation transfer function are stored in separate devices. After an image is captured with the imaging device, a system modulation transfer function is generated from the imaging device modulation transfer function and the reproduction device modulation transfer function. Then a sharpening function is generated from the system modulation transfer function and the sharpening filter function is applied to the image captured by the imaging device in order to sharpen the image.

Purpose: To compare the spherical aberration of cynomolgus monkey lenses measured with a laser ray tracing (LRT) system and the spherical aberration estimated from numerical ray-trace through a model of the lens with the measured lens shape and a reconstructed gradient refractive index (GRIN).. Methods: Measurements: LRT measurements were performed on 5 cynomolgus monkey lenses from 4 donors (4.4-7.3 years, PMT= 25.2±13.6 hours). The tissue was mounted in a lens stretcher (Ehrmann et al, Clin Exp Optom, 2008) and measured in the unstretched (accommodated) and fully stretched (relaxed) state. The LRT delivered 51 equally-spaced parallel meridional rays over a 6mm diameter zone. The height of each individual ray was measured at 12 positions along the optical axis using a camera. The measured ray heights were plotted as a function of entrance ray height and fit with a 3rd order polynomial. The focus of the lens was determined from the fits and the Zernike spherical aberration coefficients were ...

1} Discovery of the fact that certain strains of each species of these bacteria can be mixed without harmful effect to the properties of either is a discovery of their qualities of noninhibition. It is no more than the discovery of some of the handiwork of nature, and hence is not patentable. The aggregation of select strains of the several species into one product is an application of that newly discovered natural principle. But however ingenious the discovery of that natural principle may have been, the application of it is hardly more than an advance in the packaging of the inoculants. Each of the species of root nodule bacteria contained in the package infects the same group of leguminous plants which it always infected. No species acquires a different use. The combination of species produces no new bacteria, no change in the six species of bacteria, and no enlargement of the range of their utility. Each species has the same effect it always had. The bacteria perform in their natural way. ...

He added: "Many (Id say most) providers and provider groups feel that they are locked in a deadly battle with payors (and increasingly, other providers) for their livelihoods; many feel they are having to work harder and harder to bring in the same (or less) money then doctors a generation ago. Many feel that the profession has lost the autonomy and respect it used to enjoy, and that providers are now viewed as mechanized assembly line workers, held to strict quantitative "quality" metrics that rarely capture the complexity, or essence, of the patient experience ...

An apparatus for determining the objective refraction of a patients eye includes a transparent window and a wavefront measurement device that determines aberrations in a return beam from the patients eye after the beam passes through a corrective test lens in the apparatus. The wavefront measurement device outputs an instant display representative of the quality of vision afforded the patient through the test lens. The display can be a representation of a Snellen chart, convoluted with the optical characteristics of the patients vision, an overall quality of vision scale or the optical contrast function, all based on the wavefront measurements of the patients eye. The examiner may use the display information to conduct a refraction examination and other vision tests without the subjective response from the patient.
a non-optical microscope that scans an electrical probe over a surface to be imaged to detect a weak electric current flowing between the tip and the surface. The STM was invented in 1981 by Gerd Binnig and Heinrich Rohrer of IBMs Zurich Lab in Switzerland. Although initially greeted with some skepticism by materials scientists, the invention garnered the two a Nobel Prize in Physics (1986). The STM allows scientists to visualize regions of high electron density and hence infer the position of individual atoms and molecules on the surface of a lattice. Previous methods required arduous study of diffraction patterns and required interpretation to obtain spatial lattice structures. ...
All extended optical systems with aberrations suffer from anisoplanatism effect. In this presentation we investigate anisoplanatism in human eye. For that purpose we use a reference source (beacon) obtained by focusing of a dim laser beam on the retina and consider increasing the retina resolution within anisoplanatic angle by means of ideal wavefront corrector and a real bimorph flexible one. The numerical simulations of isoplanatic patch size of human retina were made for different beacon positions and based on the aberrations measured by means of custom wavefront-guided aberrometer. We found out that in particular human eye the existence of optimal correction directions is possible. As the behavior of Zernike coefficients varies from subject to subject the existence of optimal correction angle is a feature of a particular eye. We also estimated the contribution of low-order and high-order aberrations in anisoplanatism effect for the subjects we measured. We found out that aberrations with ...
The wettability index is derived from the slope of a metric developed to measure the regularity of the Shack-Hartmann wavefront sensor image. The more wettable a lens is the more stable the metric and the slope of the metric (the wettability index) is closer to zero. The more negative values indicate a less wettable the lens ...

We asked whether spatial coding in the visual system is matched to the native blur specific to an individuals HOAs by investigating long-term adaptation to the blur produced by the optics of the eye. Adaptive Optics allow us to cancel the natural aberrations of all subjects, exposing observers to identical aberration patterns and ensuring that any difference across subjects would arise from their own neural processing and their prior neural adaptation. Retinal blur was manipulated by projecting degraded images with known HOAs where realistic blur of different amounts and forms was computer simulated (we used convolved images with the optical point spread function to represent the retinal image quality) using real aberrations from a population. Our results provide strong evidence that spatial vision is calibrated for the specific blur levels present in each individuals retinal image as, for the majority of observers, the level of blur perceived as best-focused was closely predicted by the ...
The result, enhanced image quality regardless of the amount of lens power correction required. Biomedics 55 Premier was found in a recent clinical study to be a lens design which effectively controlled spherical aberration in the lens and human eye. Spherical aberration is the inability of a lens to focus light on a common point. With Biomedics 55 Premier, its ability to control aberration produces a contact lens that provides clearer, crisper, sharper vision. Also, a new thinner patented edge design provides unsurpassed wearing comfort compared to other contact lenses. Better vision and better comfort, Biomedics 55 Premier is the clear choice ...

The basic requirements for the artificial star are that it be bright for a better signal-to-noise ratio in the wavefront sensor and small in size for better accuracy in determining the wavefront distortions. Furthermore, to better sample the atmospheric turbulence, the artificial star should be put as high up in the atmosphere as possible. All of these requirements can be met by using a laser with its wavelength tuned to the sodium D2 line. With such a laser, a small, bright, artificial sodium star can be generated in the mesospheric sodium layer which lies at about 90 kilometers above sea level ...

If you look at the diagram for n = 9 on Haslers web-app, and just trace your finger down the axis of symmetry, youll count 9 regions straddling the axis. That implies that a(9) is odd (because there are certainly an even number of off-axis regions). That in turn means that A055795 cant be right, because A055795(9) = 162 is even. Indeed, my eyeball count for n = 9 (please, somebody repeat my work!) is 161. I suspect that A055795 is correct for a set of semicircles that are perturbed to prevent intersections of more than two; the 9-point case, as has been noted above, has a single triple point. If this conjecture is true, then A055795(n) - a(n) is an interesting measure of multiplicity; 0 up to n = 8, 1 for n = 9, and (eyeballing again) 5 for n = 10. If all this guesswork is correct, then a(10) = A055795(10) - 5 = 250. I have a vague outline for a program to automate the count, and would be happy to talk to any would-be coders off-list.

To investigate wavefront aberrations in the entire eye and in the internal optics (lens) and retinal image qualities according to different lenticular opacity types and densities. Forty-one eyes with nuclear cataract, 33 eyes with cortical cataract, and 29 eyes with posterior subcapsular cataract were examined. In each group, wavefront aberrations in the entire eye and in the internal optics and retinal image quality were measured using a raytracing aberrometer. Eyes with cortical cataracts showed significantly higher coma-like aberrations compared to the other two groups in both entire eye and internal optic aberrations (P = 0 ...
Contrast discrimination is an important type of information for establishing image quality metrics based on human vision. We used a dual-masking paradigm to study how contrast discrimination can be influenced by the presence of adjacent stimuli. In a dual masking paradigm, the observers task is to detect a target superimposed on a pedestal in the presence of flankers. The flankers (1) reduce the target threshold at zero pedestal contrast; (2) reduce the size of pedestal facilitation at low pedestal contrasts; and (3) shift the TvC (Target threshold vs. pedestal contrast) function horizontally to the left on a log-log plot at high pedestal contrasts. The horizontal shift at high pedestal contrasts suggests that the flanker effect is a multiplicative factor that cannot be explained by previous models of contrast discrimination. We extended a divisive inhibition model of contrast discrimination by implementing the flanker effect as a multiplicative sensitivity modulation factor that account for ...

A magnetic memory cell including a data storage layer having an easy axis and a reference layer having an orientation of magnetization which is pinned in a direction that is off-axis with respect to the easy axis. This structure increases the signal obtainable during read operation on the magnetic memory cell notwithstanding the effects of magnetizations in the edge domains of the data storage layer. In addition, this structure allows high MRAM densities to be achieved using square-shaped memory cell structures.

This thesis is about our peripheral vision. Peripheral vision is poor compared to central vision, due to both neural and optical factors. The optical factors include astigmatism, defocus and higher order aberrations consisting mainly of coma. Neurally, the density of ganglion cells decreases towards the periphery, which limits the sampling density. The questions that this thesis attempts to answer are how much and under which circumstances correction of optical errors can improve peripheral vision. For this, an adaptive optics system has been constructed with a wavefront sensor and a deformable mirror working in closed loop to perform real-time correction of optical errors. To investigate vision, psychophysical routines utilizing Bayesian methods have been evaluated and modified for peripheral vision to handle the presence of aliasing, fixation instability and rapid fatigue.. We found that correcting both refractive errors and higher order aberrations improved peripheral low-contrast resolution ...
To compare the outcomes of intraoperative wavefront aberrometry versus optical biometry alone for intraocular lens (IOL) power calculation in eyes undergoing cataract surgery with monofocal IOL implantation.. Preoperative data were obtained with the IOLMaster. Intraoperative aphakic measurements and IOL power calculations were obtained in some patients with the optiwave refractive analysis (ORA) system. Analysis was performed to determine the accuracy of monofocal IOL power prediction and postoperative manifest refraction at 1 month of the ORA versus IOLMaster.. Two hundred and ninety-five eyes reviewed, 61 had only preoperative IOLMaster measurements and 234 had both IOLMaster and ORA measurements. Of these 234 eyes, 6 were excluded, 107 had the same recommended IOL power by ORA and IOLMaster. Sixty-four percent of these eyes were within ±0.5D. 95 eyes had IOL power implantation based on ORA instead of IOLMaster. Seventy percent of these eyes were within ±0.5D of target refraction. 26 eyes ...
This study aimed to explore the neural development status of the visual system of children (around 8 years old) using contrast sensitivity. We achieved this by eliminating the influence of higher order aberrations (HOAs) with adaptive optics correction. We measured HOAs, modulation transfer functions (MTFs) and contrast sensitivity functions (CSFs) of six children and five adults with both corrected and uncorrected HOAs. We found that when HOAs were corrected, children and adults both showed improvements in MTF and CSF. However, the CSF of children was still lower than the adult level, indicating the difference in contrast sensitivity between groups cannot be explained by differences in optical factors. Further study showed that the difference between the groups also could not be explained by differences in non-visual factors. With these results we concluded that the neural systems underlying vision in children of around 8 years old are still immature in contrast sensitivity.
Lots of ophthalmologic cosmetic surgeons are currently supplied the next evolution in LASIK surgical treatment, which they called Customized LASIK. The general treatment used to correct refractive mistakes coincides as is used for conventional LASIK treatments, with the enhancement of wavefront devices made use of to map the distinct surface area of the clients eye. The wavefront tool passes a narrow ray check out here of light through the systems as well as into the eye, measuring any optical distortions that result as the light leaves back out the eye. Any kind of abnormalities recognized are after that fed back right into the system so that the laser can automatically deal with for aberrations on the surface of the eye. Proponents of Personalized LASIK case that the use of wavefront modern technology allows cosmetic surgeons to deal with greater order aberrations that could add to low-light aesthetic disruptions such as halos as well as glare not corrected by conventional LASIK, eyeglasses, ...

Collagen cross-linking provided good long-term visual, refractive and topographic outcomes in eyes treated for progressive keratoconus, a study found. The prospective case series included 42 eyes of 32 patients with progressive keratoconus and a mean age of 22.4 years. Bilateral surgery was performed on 11 patients. The mean interval between diagnosis and treatment was 2.2 years.
A network optimization algorithm was used to find wavetip paths (Figure 2B⇑ and 2C⇑). First, a directed graph was constructed in which a node represented every eligible active sample in the most-reentrant route (ie, the route with the largest ratio of activations to activated electrodes) through the wavefront graph component. The edges of this graph connected each active sample with all of the active samples in the succeeding timestep. Each edge was then weighted with the distance between the electrodes associated with the active samples connected by the edge. The graph therefore defined all possible paths that contain one active sample in each timestep. The length of any path was simply the sum of the weights of the edges along the path. A hypothetical wavefront containing 6 active samples in 3 timesteps is illustrated in Figure 2B⇑. The graph and associated edge weights constructed from this wavefront are shown in Figure 2C⇑.. The shortest path through such a graph is our desired ...
Immersing themselves in a research environment can provide teachers with a new perspective when they return to the classroom. Program participants have reported that the stress of adapting to the labs - of absorbing seemingly overwhelming amounts of information in short periods of time - helps them to better appreciate their students difficulties.

I dont really know the answer, but lets see how we can find it ...
The formation of somites, during embryonic development, is highly regulated both temporally and spatially. The main effectors of this regulation are a set of cyclic genes, that display an oscillating pattern of expression, and a morphogenetic gradient, which constitutes the wavefront of differentiation. Wilts the oscillating behavior of the cyclic genes requires a certain instability at the mRNA level, the wavefront gradient is formed by the slow degradation of mRNA. Our aim is the study and characterization of the mechanisms that regulate mRNA stability in this context. Using Zebrafish as a model organism, we are combining bioinformatic and biochemical approaches with in vivo studies ...

Efficacy and safety of fluticasone furoate nasal spray, administered using a unique side-actuated device, were evaluated in patients ≥12 years of age with seasonal allergic rhinitis to determine the optimal dose. A randomized, double-blind, parallel-group, placebo-controlled, dose-ranging study was performed on 641 patients who received placebo (n = 128) or fluticasone furoate, 55 g (n = 127), 110 g (n = 127), 220 g (n = 129), or 440 g (n = 130), once daily for 2 weeks. Fluticasone furoate was significantly more effective than placebo for mean changes from baseline over the 2-week treatment period in daily reflective total nasal symptom score (primary end point; p < 0.001 each dose vs. placebo), morning predose instantaneous total nasal symptom score (p < 0.001 each dose versus placebo), daily reflective total ocular symptom score (p ≤ 0.013 each dose versus placebo), and morning predose instantaneous total ocular symptom score (p ≤ 0.019 for three highest doses versus ...
Conclusions Using patients as their own controls, the outcomes of this study indicate that eyes with recurrent HSK with no apparent decrease in visual acuity (0 logMAR) have significantly greater optical aberrations than eyes with no past history of herpetic disease. This outcome may explain some visual complaints of HSK patients, such as a decrease in contrast quality or reduced colour perception, compared with the unaffected contralateral eye despite apparently normal vision in both eyes.. ...
Low vision rehabilitation is like physical therapy after loss of a limb. The end result is maintenance of independence and a sense of self-worth. This rebuilding and reinforcement of the visual foundation is mainly accomplished through identification of goals, introduction to low vision devices, and training. After evaluation by a low vision specialist, specially trained therapists teach daily activities such as safe cooking strategies, proper lighting, labeling techniques, and use of adaptive equipment. Such equipment includes optical devices like prescription magnification glasses, electronic magnifiers, telescopes, and computer magnification software. Non-optical approaches are also introduced, such as large print books, talking books, and scanners that read printed material aloud. Low vision rehabilitation is an important part of the continuum of care following diagnosis of AMD. Such training will help you maintain your quality of life and independence by finding new ways to function and ...

Im not going to try to parse the code in an email message, but although it is quite difficult to read, it is set up to avoid referring to any unallocated memory (otherwise it would crash, or at least generate errors in valgrind). The crucial fact, which may help you understand the code, is that a 2D Gaussian blur can be implemented by doing two 1D Gaussian blurs, first vertically, then horizontally. Thus, the code starts out by doing a 1D blur on each column of the image. When this is finished, the result is processed by independently blurring each row. It is a remarkable theorem that this sequence of two 1D convolutions gives exactly the same result as the full 2D convolution -- at least, it gives the same result if the region is rectangular and all pixels are fully selected and equally weighted. Basically this happens because the kernel of the 2D Gaussian blur factors: exp (-(x^2 + y^2)) = exp (-x^2) * exp (-y^2). This allows the double integral in the 2D convolution to be factored into a ...

The relative contributions of optical aberrations of the cornea and the crystalline lens to the final image quality of the human eye were studied. The aberrations of the entire eye were obtained from pairs of double-pass retinal images, and the aberrations of the cornea were obtained from videokeratographic data. Third-order spherical aberration and coma were significantly larger for the cornea than for the complete eye, indicating a significant role of the lens in compensating for corneal aberrations. In a second experiment retinal images were recorded in an eye before and after we neutralized the aberrations of the cornea by having the subjects wear swimming goggles filled with saline water, providing a direct estimate of the optical performance of the crystalline lens.. © 1998 Optical Society of America.
