Abstract

Shack–Hartmann wavefront sensors have found widespread application for testing ocular aberrations. These sensors provide an accurate map of the wavefront emerging from an eye in most cases. However, there is a growing class of patients with diffractive intraocular lenses that will potentially be measured incorrectly with Shack–Hartmann devices. We explore the pitfalls of measuring diffractive lenses with this technology.
