Paper Abstract

We report a technique to estimate eye aberrations, based mainly on the subjective crossed-cylinder method. In order to obtain accurate coordinates of cross sections of the aberration distorted grid image on the retinal plane, needed in subjective methods, fusion of two images is used. The image seen by the eye under investigation is fused by the patient with a similar grid generated and reshaped in the appropriate way on the computer screen. The computer simulated image is viewed either by the second eye (in order to avoid eye rivalry and suppression processes, that are typical for such conditions, stimuli for both eyes are discontinuous and are displayed sequentially with a frequency of 50 Hz) or by the eye under investigation using an optical prism bypass.
