Recent advances in measurements of monochromatic aberrations of human eyes

Atchison, David A. (2005) Recent advances in measurements of monochromatic aberrations of human eyes. Clinical and Experimental Optometry, 88(1), pp. 5-27.


The field of aberrations of the human eye is moving rapidly, being driven by the desire to monitor and optimise vision following refractive surgery. It is important for ophthalmologists and optometrists to have an understanding of the magnitude of various aberrations and how these are likely to be affected by refractive surgery and other corrections. In this paper, I consider methods used to measure aberrations, the magnitude of aberrations in general populations and how these are affected by various factors (for example, age, refractive error, accommodation and refractive surgery) and how aberrations and their correction affect spatial visual performance.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® 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.
