Wavefront curvature sensing for the human eye

Torti, C., Gruppetta, S. & Diaz-Santana, L. (2008). Wavefront curvature sensing for the human eye. Journal of Modern Optics, 55(4), pp. 691-702. doi: 10.1080/09500340701470037


In this paper we present a curvature wavefront sensor for the eye. The layout proposed is novel, whilst the algorithm used has been adapted from previously published work [Roddier, F.; Roddier, C. Appl. Opt. 1991, 30, 1325–1327]. The design of the set-up incorporates two field lenses that, together with a beam separator, define the distance Δz between the two sampled planes. We present a feasibility study to use this particular combination of optical configuration and retrieval algorithm in the eye. We present calibration curves and results from three real eyes.
