Aspheric High Positive Power Lenses and Third Order Theory
To correct third order (primary) oblique astigmatism of thin spectacle lenses outside an approximate lens power range of -22 D to +7 D, one surface must be aspherized. Aspherizing is of particular importance in the high positive power range used for the correction of aphakia. Graphs are presented showing the required front surface asphericities and power drops required to correct oblique astigmatism in this range. The results are a guide to the required asphericities in thick lenses.
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.
