Study on spherical aberration of the crystalline lens with stretching published in IOVS


A collaborative study between the Byophysics Group in Bascom Palmer Eye Research Institute and VIOBIO Lab in Instituto de Optica reports changes in spherical aberration of the monkey crystalline lenses as a function of simulated accommodation. There is a great correspondence between laser ray tracing measurements of spherical aberrations and estimations based on the measurements lens shape and Gradient Index.

The study appears in March issue of IOVS.
