Abstract

We have used the Hartmann-Shack technique previously to measure ocular aberrations along the horizontal meridian of the visual field. This requires considerable modifications from the technique for measuring the aberrations corresponding to the fovea. We now further develop the technique so that it can be used for any meridian of the visual field. Allowance is made for any auxiliary optics placed in front of the eye to compensate for the limited range of the Hartmann-Shack technique and for the case where aberrations are estimated at a wavelength other than the measuring wavelength. Zernike wave aberrations are converted to peripheral refractions. Examples are presented showing the developments, and we discuss change in wave aberrations when converting from a circular to an elliptical pupil.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
