Abstract

The near-vision performance of emmetropic presbyopes can be improved by the monocular surgical implantation of small-aperture corneal inlays or intraocular lenses that contain either an annular or circular stop to increase ocular depth of focus. Ray tracing is used to show that, although different stop designs and positions may produce similar axial imagery and increases in depth of focus, off-axis, the vignetting effects associated with the distance between the stop and the iris aperture result in different field dependences for the pupil transmittance. The implications of these effects, and of implanting a stop in only one eye, are discussed.
