Abstract

We have developed an aberro-polariscope that simultaneously measures spatially resolved polarization properties and wave-front aberration in a living human eye. The setup consists of an infrared Hartmann–Shack sensor that incorporates a polariscope. A series of four Hartmann–Shack images corresponding to independent polarization states were recorded. The corresponding wave-front aberration was computed from each image. Moreover, from each set of four images spatially resolved (over the pupil plane) parameters of polarization were also determined. This instrument allows useful information on both the optical and the biomechanical properties of the eye to be obtained.
