Paper Abstract

New objective methods to measure the optical aberrations of the eye are reviewed, in particular probably more representative ones: Hartmann-Shack wavefront sensor and Laser Ray Tracing. They are shown to be robust and provide highly reliable data, which is permitting to obtain many new results about the optics of the eye in basic and clinical studies. In addition, different experiments have demonstrated the correction of eye's aberration. Again tow representative approaches are reviewed. The first results were obtained with the close-loop adaptive optics system developed at the University of Rochester. Later on, phase plates made by photo sculpture in photoresist, have also permitted the correction of ocular aberrations. This is a new, but already very active field of research, which has opened many new questions and a wide variety of applications.
