LCA correction in diffractive intraocular lenses: an innovative optical design (Conference Presentation)
Author(s): Jérôme Loicq; Nicolas Willet; Damien Gatinel

Paper Abstract

In this paper we present a new design for diffractive multifocal intraocular lens with the primary goal to compensate as much as possible the effect of chromatic aberration. As LCA due to diffraction and refraction act in an opposite way it can in principle be compensated. However rules to create an achromatic lens based on refractive-diffractive lens are quite complex because of topology, dioptry , abbe number,… In this study, we will investigate the effect of wavelength on the through-focus modulation transfer function (MTF) and diffraction efficiency for different pupil apertures and different diffractive intraocular lenses.
