Paper Abstract

To treat cataract intraocular lenses (IOLs) are used to replace the clouded human eye lens. Due to postoperative healing processes the IOL can displace within the eye, which can lead to deteriorated quality of vision. To test and characterize these effect an IOL can be embedded into a model of the humane eye. One informative measure are wavefront aberrations. In this paper three different setups, the typical double-pass configuration (DP), a single-pass (SP1) where the measured light travels in the same direction as in DP and a single-pass (SP2) with reversed direction, are investigated. All three setups correctly measure the aberrations of the eye, where SP1 is found to be the simplest to set up and align. Because of the lowest complexity it is the proposed method for wavefront measurement in model eyes.
