Refractive Errors Induced by Displacement of Intraocular Lenses within the Pseudophakic Eye

Atchison, David A. (1989) Refractive Errors Induced by Displacement of Intraocular Lenses within the Pseudophakic Eye. Optometry and Vision Science, 66(3), pp. 146-152.


Simple methods were developed to estimate refractive errors when intraocular lenses are not fitted optimally within pseudophakic eyes. The accuracy of these methods was determined by comparing results obtained with them to results obtained by raytracing through a model eye. Accuracy was good for longitudinal displacement and tilting, and reasonable for transverse displacement. Refractive errors are related linearly to the magnitude of the longitudinal displacement, and are related to the square of the magnitude of tilt or transverse displacement. The refractive error upon transverse is quadratically dependent upon lens shape.

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.
