Abstract

Contrast threshold and visual Strehl ratio methods are used to predict visual acuity from wavefront error for a sample population of pre- and post-LASIK patients. Relative error (in logMAR) between predicted and measured visual acuity values are computed for each method and compared using paired t-tests. Differences in aberration data between pre- and post-LASIK eyes are then evaluated. The visual acuity prediction using visual Strehl proved to be more accurate for pre-LASIK patients than contrast threshold. However, both methods are comparable for post-LASIK patients.
