Recent advances in representation of monochromatic aberrations of human eyes

Atchison, David A. (2004) Recent advances in representation of monochromatic aberrations of human eyes. Clinical and Experimental Optometry, 87(3), pp. 138-148.


The field of aberrations of the human eye is moving rapidly, being driven by the desire to monitor and optimise vision following refractive surgery. In this paper, I discuss the different ways of representing aberrations of the human eye, the terminology used, how wave aberrations are used to determine refractions, the influence of pupil size on aberrations, how to compare right and left eye aberrations, how aberrations can be manipulated into different forms, how to make corrections for changes in wavelength, the appropriate ocular axis, and corneal and lenticular components of the aberrations.

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.
