Third-order Theory and Aspheric Spectacle Lens Design
Atchison, David A. (1984) Third-order Theory and Aspheric Spectacle Lens Design. Ophthalmic and Physiological Optics, 4(2), pp. 179-186.
Third-order equations are developed giving sagittal and tangential power errors corresponding to the eye rotating to look through the periphery of a spectacle lens. The equations are applicable for conicoid aspherical surfaces. From these, other equations are derived for elimination of oblique astigmatism and mean oblique error. Graphical examples show how aspherizing either lens surface affects the lens bendings required to eliminate oblique astigmatism.
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.
