In vivo chromatic aberrations in eyes implanted with IOLs published in #IOVS


Aberrations in two different wavelengths were measured in patients implanted with two different types of IOLs (Alco Acrysof and AMO Tecnis), allowing estimates of chromatic difference of focus in vivo.  The impact of chromatic defocus is attenuated by the presence of monochromatic aberrations.

The study has just published in IOVS. Full reference: Perez-Merino P, Dorronsoro C, Llorente L, Duran S, Jimenez-Alfaro I, Marcos S. In vivo chromatic aberration in eyes implanted with intraocular lenses. Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci.  2013;54:2654–2661.
