Paper Abstract

This paper presents the effect of Ametropia on the laser interferometric visual acuity (LIVA) in the examination of human visual performance. The ocular correction is used as a means of measuring the refractive state of the eye and its accommodation. Theoretical expressions for the relationship between ametropia and the LIVA are derived in terms of geometrical optics. The transmissivity and the aberrations of the human eye, the ability of fringe pattern recognition and the difference between the LIVA and the usual geometrical figure visual acuity are discussed.
