Third-order aberrations of pseudophakic eyes
Atchison, David A. (1989) Third-order aberrations of pseudophakic eyes. Ophthalmic and Physiological Optics, 9(-), pp. 205-211.
The aberrations of pseudophakic eyes were analysed by third-order theory assuming thin intraocular lenses. Third-order aberrations with spherical surfaced lenses are quadratic functions of lens shape. Spherical aberration and coma are generally the most rapidly changing aberrations, at small field positions, with change in lens shape. Optimum designs probably lie within the shape factor range at which these attain minimum absolute values (+1.1, spherical aberration; -0.9 to -3.4, coma). The importance of spherical aberration declines relative to that of off-axis aberrations as pupil size decreases. The introduction of a level of corneal asphericity alters each aberration by a constant amount for any lens shape.
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.
