Asymmetries in the topography and refractive index of the corneal surface that affect visual acuity.
The measurement of curvature and shape of the anterior surface of the cornea using techniques such as keratometry, keratoscopy, photokeratoscopy, profile photography, computer-assisted image processing and videokeratography. This measurement is often applied in the fitting of contact lenses and in diagnosing corneal diseases or corneal changes including keratoconus, which occur after keratotomy and keratoplasty.
The use of an aberrometer to measure eye tissue imperfections or abnormalities based on the way light passes through the eye which affects the ability of the eye to focus properly.
Refraction of LIGHT effected by the media of the EYE.
Deviations from the average or standard indices of refraction of the eye through its dioptric or refractive apparatus.
The dioptric adjustment of the EYE (to attain maximal sharpness of retinal imagery for an object of regard) referring to the ability, to the mechanism, or to the process. Ocular accommodation is the effecting of refractive changes by changes in the shape of the CRYSTALLINE LENS. Loosely, it refers to ocular adjustments for VISION, OCULAR at various distances. (Cline et al., Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed)
The aperture in the iris through which light passes.
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)
Pieces of glass or other transparent materials used for magnification or increased visual acuity.
A refractive error in which rays of light entering the EYE parallel to the optic axis are brought to a focus in front of the RETINA when accommodation (ACCOMMODATION, OCULAR) is relaxed. This results from an overly curved CORNEA or from the eyeball being too long from front to back. It is also called nearsightedness.
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.
Instruments for RETINOSCOPY that determines the refractive state of the EYE, such as the degree of NEARSIGHTEDNESS; FARSIGHTEDNESS; or ASTIGMATISM. In principle, a retinoscope provides a light source to illuminate the RETINA, and then locates the aerial image of the retina in space to obtain an index of the refractive quality of the patient's lens system.
The transparent anterior portion of the fibrous coat of the eye consisting of five layers: stratified squamous CORNEAL EPITHELIUM; BOWMAN MEMBRANE; CORNEAL STROMA; DESCEMET MEMBRANE; and mesenchymal CORNEAL ENDOTHELIUM. It serves as the first refracting medium of the eye. It is structurally continuous with the SCLERA, avascular, receiving its nourishment by permeation through spaces between the lamellae, and is innervated by the ophthalmic division of the TRIGEMINAL NERVE via the ciliary nerves and those of the surrounding conjunctiva which together form plexuses.

Methods and procedures for the diagnosis of diseases of the eye or of vision disorders.
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. (UMDNS, 2005)
Abnormal number or structure of chromosomes. Chromosome aberrations may result in CHROMOSOME DISORDERS.
Clarity or sharpness of OCULAR VISION or the ability of the eye to see fine details. Visual acuity depends on the functions of RETINA, neuronal transmission, and the interpretative ability of the brain. Normal visual acuity is expressed as 20/20 indicating that one can see at 20 feet what should normally be seen at that distance. Visual acuity can also be influenced by brightness, color, and contrast.

Partial or total replacement of all layers of a central portion of the cornea.
A noninflammatory, usually bilateral protrusion of the cornea, the apex being displaced downward and nasally. It occurs most commonly in females at about puberty. The cause is unknown but hereditary factors may play a role. The -conus refers to the cone shape of the corneal protrusion. (From Dorland, 27th ed)
Methods of creating machines and devices.
An optical source that emits photons in a coherent beam. Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation (LASER) is brought about using devices that transform light of varying frequencies into a single intense, nearly nondivergent beam of monochromatic radiation. Lasers operate in the infrared, visible, ultraviolet, or X-ray regions of the spectrum.
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)
The organ of sight constituting a pair of globular organs made up of a three-layered roughly spherical structure specialized for receiving and responding to light.
The state of being free from intrusion or disturbance in one's private life or affairs. (Random House Unabridged Dictionary, 2d ed, 1993)

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 ...

Figure 6 shows preoperative (white bars) and postoperative (black bars) values of the RMS spherical aberration, for a 6.5-mm pupil. It appears as positive in all cases, because it is given in terms of the RMS corresponding to Z 4 0 and Z 6 0 . 29 Eyes are sorted by increasing myopic spherical error, as in Figure 5 . There is a dramatic increase in spherical aberration after LASIK in all but three eyes (1, 10, and 11). The spherical-aberration RMS increase ranged from 0.002 to 0.97 μm. Table 1 , row 5, shows the average increase of spherical aberration (by a factor of 3.99) in this group of eyes, which is highly statistically significant (P , 0.0001). For a 3-mm pupil, the RMS corresponding to spherical aberration increases by a factor of 7.48 on average, and this increase is again significant (P = 0.002). The increase of 4th order aberration terms (Table 1 , row 3) is mostly due to the increase in spherical aberration. The fact that the asphericity of the cornea changes with surgery (from a ...
Coherence-gated wavefront sensing (CGWS) allows the determination of wavefront aberrations in strongly scattering tissue and their correction by adaptive optics. This allows, e.g., the restoration of the diffraction limit in light microscopy. Here, we develop a model, based on ray tracing of ballistic light scattered from a set of discrete scatterers, to characterize CGWS performance as it depends on coherence length, scatterer density, coherence-gate position, and polarization. The model is evaluated by using Monte Carlo simulation and verified against experimental measurements. We show, in particular, that all aberrations needed for adaptive wavefront restoration are correctly sensed if circularly polarized light is used.. © 2007 Optical Society of America.

Y1 - 2010/8/13. N2 - In this paper, high order sliding mode control is proposed to realize the synchronization of two Ghostburster neurons under external electrical stimulation. Being a motion on a discontinuity set of a dynamic system, the sliding mode is used to keep accurately a given constraint and features theoretically-infinite-frequency switching. As the high order sliding mode technique employed in this paper, it considers a fractional power of the absolute value of the tracking error coupled with the sign function. This structure provides several advantages such as the simplification of the control law, higher accuracy and chattering prevention. Firstly we analyze the periodic and chaotic dynamics of individual Ghostburster neuron under different external electrical stimulus, then high order sliding mode ...
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 ...
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.
It would be technically possible to create a custom wavefront ablation map that would be designed to overcorrect sphere, however the effect would be limited and quite possibly counterproductive. Any excimer laser surgery will affect Higher Order Aberrations (HOA). Sphere and cylinder are Lower Order Aberrations (LOA). Current wavefront guided systems do well at reducing the amount of increased HOA during surgery, but they do not reliably and predictably reduce HOA or even keep HOA at the same level. Surgery to overcorrect sphere would undoubtedly increase HOA even more than surgery to correct sphere to plano (no refractive error). Overcorrection with todays systems may provide the desired quantity of overcorrection of sphere, but would very likely decrease the quality of vision by increasing HOA ...
Simulating atmospheric turbulence is an essential task for evaluating turbulence mitigation algorithms and training learning-based methods. Advanced numerical simulators for atmospheric turbulence are available, but they require evaluating wave propagation which is computationally expensive. In this paper, we present a propagation-free method for simulating imaging through turbulence. The key idea behind our work is a new method to draw inter-modal and spatially correlated Zernike coefficients. By establishing the equivalence between the angle-of-arrival correlation by Basu, McCrae and Fiorino (2015) and the multi-aperture correlation by Chanan (1992), we show that the Zernike coefficients can be drawn according to a covariance matrix defining the correlations. We propose fast and scalable sampling strategies to draw these samples. The new method allows us to compress the wave propagation problem into a sampling problem, hence making the new simulator significantly faster than existing ones. ...

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 ...

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). ...
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 ...
When the contact lens is well centered, the central flattening - just as the laser refractive procedure - induced spherical aberration. If the contact lens has lateral or vertical displacement, it will induce horizontal or vertical coma just as with decentration of laser ablation. The spherical aberration and coma are the main high-order aberrations for patients following orthokeratology. The measure of optical quality with modulation transfer function shows the retinal image quality get worse after orthokeratology as compared to only high-order aberrations ...
We have employed ptychographic coherent diffractive imaging to completely characterize the focal spot wavefield and wavefront aberrations of a high-resolution diffractive X-ray lens. The ptychographic data from a strongly scattering object was acquired using the radiation cone emanating from a coherently illuminated Fresnel zone plate at a photon energy of 6.2 keV. Reconstructed images of the object were retrieved with a spatial resolution of 8 nm by combining the difference-map phase retrieval algorithm with a non-linear optimization refinement. By numerically propagating the reconstructed illumination function, we have obtained the X-ray wavefield profile of the 23 nm round focus of the Fresnel zone plate (outermost zone width, Δr = 20 nm) as well as the X-ray wavefront at the exit pupil of the lens. The measurements of the wavefront aberrations were repeatable to within a root mean square error of 0.006 waves, and we demonstrate that they can be related to manufacturing aspects of the ...

Alignment of optical components is one of the important requirements in any optical system. Decentration of a component, like a lens, in the path of the beam, would introduce aberrations of various types. This would affect the measurement accuracy in the optical system such as an interferometer. In this work, we have analyzed the influence of decentration of an optical component on the wavefront in an optical system. The various aberrations caused due to the shifting of the axis of a lens in the path of an optical wavefront have been measured using a Shack Hartmann Wavefront Sensor and their influence studied. One of the lenses in the optical system is moved or decentered in transverse direction by 500 μm in steps of 50 μm. Decentration was done for all four quadrants. For each step, wavefront data is been taken and data was analyzed. Defocus, horizontal coma, vertical coma and spherical aberration were analyzed, apart from peak-to-valley and RMS values. Results showed that the error ...

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.

In this thesis, we have analyzed the accuracy and stability aspects of weak boundary and interface conditions (WBCs) for high order finite difference methods on Summations-By-Parts (SBP) form. The numerical technique has been applied to wave propagation and flow problems.. The advantage of WBCs over strong boundary conditions is that stability of the numerical scheme can be proven. The boundary procedures in the advection-diffusion equation for a boundary layer problem is analyzed. By performing Navier-Stokes calculations, it is shown that most of the conclusions from the model problem carries over to the fully nonlinear case.. The work was complemented to include the new idea of using WBCs on multiple grid points in a region, where the data is known, instead of at a single point. It was shown that we can achieve high accuracy, an increased rate of convergence to steady-state and non-reflecting boundary conditions by using this approach.. Using the SBP technique and WBCs, we have worked out how ...
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 ...
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 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 ...

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 ...

Laser in situ keratomileusis is a successful procedure for the treatment of low to moderate myopia.. Advances over the last decade have allowed LASIK to also correct higher order wavefront aberrations. In low myopia, there seem to be a minor effect of such wavefront-guided treatment. However, it remains to be established whether there is a beneficial effect in higher degrees of myopia.. The study aims to determine whether myopic subjects (-6 to -10 diopters) with higher-than-average preoperative higher-order aberrations have benefit of wavefront-guided treatment. Subjects are randomized to wavefront-guided treatment in one eye, and conventional treatment in the other. ...

This thesis is dedicated to implementing wavefront analysis for studying the peripheral optics of the human eye with an emphasis on its relation to myopia. The aim is to find properties in the peripheral image quality. The work consists of the following main parts: • Literature review and analysis of population data on ocular aberrations of the relaxed eye over the horizontal visual field (Paper B). This paper recommends a method for the peripheral wavefront analysis and presents data for different groups of people: (a) population average, (b) myopic, and (c) emmetropic subjects. • Development of a novel, dual-angle, open field wavefront sensor (Paper D). The device enables recording of real-time, simultaneous fovealperipheral wavefront measurements, while providing a binocular open field of view. • Studying optical quality for myopic and emmetropic subjects under different accommodation demands (Paper F). The novelty of this work is the real-time accommodation state tracking, allowing a ...
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, ...

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 ...

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.

A method of and apparatus for improving vision and the resolution of retinal images is described in which a point source produced on the retina of a living eye by a laser beam is reflected from the retina and received at a lenslet array of a Hartmann-Shack wavefront sensor such that each of the lenslets in the lenslet array forms an aerial image of the retinal point source on a CCD camera located adjacent to the lenslet array. The output signal from the CCD camera is acquired by a computer which processes the signal and produces a correction signal which may be used to control a compensating optical or wavefront compensation device such as a deformable mirror. It may also be used to fabricate a contact lens or intraocular lens, or to guide a surgical procedure to correct the aberrations of the eye. Any of these methods could correct aberrations beyond defocus and astigmatism, allowing improved vision and improved imaging of the inside of the eye.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Estimation and prediction for spatial generalized linear mixed models using high order Laplace approximation. AU - Evangelou, Evangelos. AU - Zhu, Zhengyuan. AU - Smith, Richard L. PY - 2011/11. Y1 - 2011/11. N2 - Estimation and prediction in generalized linear mixed models are often hampered by intractable high dimensional integrals. This paper provides a framework to solve this intractability, using asymptotic expansions when the number of random effects is large. To that end, we first derive a modified Laplace approximation when the number of random effects is increasing at a lower rate than the sample size. Second, we propose an approximate likelihood method based on the asymptotic expansion of the log-likelihood using the modified Laplace approximation which is maximized using a quasi- Newton algorithm. Finally, we define the second order plug-in predictive density based on a similar expansion to the plug-in predictive density and show that it is a normal density. Our ...

Calculations have been performed of the errors introduced in the measurement of peak absorbances by Fourier transform spectroscopy as a result of the finite resolution of the instrument. A Lorentzian line shape and either box-car or triangular apodization has been assumed, For comparison with conventional infrared spectrometers, similar calculations were made assuming a triangular instrument (slit) function. Except for the case of large peak absorbances, the results for triangular apodization are similar to those for the triangular instrument function. Errors become increasingly large as the spectral resolution becomes greater than one-tenth the width of the line at half height. For box-car apodization, the errors are considerably smaller and become large only when resolution becomes greater than line width. Spectra of the $223 1 cm^{-1}$ band of benzonitrile in $CC1_{4}$ solutions have been obtained and generally confirm the results of the calculations. Practical comparisons of box-car and ...
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 ...
