Diffractive properties of the Diffrax bifocal lens
Atchison, David A. & Thibos, Larry N. (1993) Diffractive properties of the Diffrax bifocal lens. Ophthalmic and Physiological Optics, 13(2), pp. 186-188.
We have verified that the Pilkington Diffrax lens behaves optically as a diffractive bifocal contact lens. The longitudinal chromatic aberration of the lens is similar of that predicted by theory, both on and off the eye. The over-refraction with the lens on the eye is similar to the distance subjective refraction, which is also predicted.
