Comparison of vision through surface modulated and spatial light modulated multifocal optics published in Biomedical Optics Express
Spatial-light-modulators (SLM) are increasingly used as active elements in adaptive optics (AO) systems to simulate optical corrections, in particular multifocal presbyopic corrections. In this study, we compared perceived visual quality with lathe-manufactured multi-zone multifocal segmented surfaces and through the same corrections simulated with a SLM in a custom-developed two-active-element AO visual simulator, and found high correspondence between them. Moreover, optical simulations predicted differences in perceived visual quality across different designs.
