Off-axis measurements of a plano distance power progressive addition lens
To test that the Humphrey Lens Analyzer can be used validly to measure off-axis powers of progressive addition lenses of low distance power, we made measurements of a plano distance progressive power lens with both a conventional focimeter and the Humphrey Lens Analyzer. The use of the Humphrey Lens Analyzer in two modes, one in which the lens rotated about its back surface centre of curvature (mode 2), gave off-axis power measurements which were similar to those of conventional measurements. In addition, the Humphrey Lens Analyzer in mode 1 gave prism measurements which were similar to conventional measurements. The Humphrey Lens Analyzer in mode 2 gave prism measurements which were less than those of conventional measurements, but the prism contours were similar and the differences were <1 Δ within 20 mm of the lens centre.
