Laboratory Evaluation of Commercial Aspheric Aphakic Lenses
Four types of commercial aspheric aphakic lenses were assessed with respect to mass, spectacle magnification, off-axis power errors, and peripheral distortion. The aspheric lenses have better distortion and off-axis imagery properties than spherical flat back lenses, but the improvement in distortion properties is small for those lenses whose design form specifies a flattish back surface. The claims concerning the distortion properties of these lenses are exaggerated. The shape (bending) of lenses has a large effect on spectacle magnification, peripheral distortion, and off-axis imagery
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and 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.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
