Spectacle lenses which correct oblique astigmatism at all ocular rotations: investigation of 'Merte's' conicoidal surfaces
Atchison, David A., Smith, George, Jalie, Mo, & Gulley, David (1996) Spectacle lenses which correct oblique astigmatism at all ocular rotations: investigation of 'Merte's' conicoidal surfaces. Ophthalmic and Physiological Optics, 16(5), pp. 438-446.
Merte (1950) described lens forms that correct oblique astigmatism at all ocular rotations. The front surfaces of all lenses were flat, and the back surfaces were made aspherical as conicoids. Merte did not provide a derivation of his formulae for the appropriate conicoidal surfaces. We show that Merte formula is correct and describe that nature of appropriate conicoidal back surfaces of spectacle 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.
