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.

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.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
