Paper Abstract

A model eye wet-cell was used to evaluate the effects of tilt and decentration on the optical performance of three different designs of multifocal intraocular lenses. Tilt and decentration have the greatest effect on diffractive lenses shrinking the depth of focus, decreasing resolution, and increasing power. Tilt or decentration of aspheric refractive lenses significantly decreases image quality. Tilt and decentration have little effect on spherical refractive lenses.
