Paper Abstract

One of the most commonly performed ophthalmic surgeries is the replacement of the eye lens by a synthetic intraocular lens. Because of the trend to match the intraocular lens with the properties of the individual eye, intricate designs for IOLs have been developed. Multifocal, diffractive as well as aspheric designs demand for elaborate measurement and analysis options. Various measurement methods have evolved including techniques which analyze the image itself or the emerging wavefront. In order to understand the advantages of these different methods intraocular lenses of various designs have been measured and analyzed under miscellaneous conditions. Measurement results of this comparison will be presented.
