A two-element null lens, optimized for a 20-diopter silicone intraocular lens (IOL), was designed and tested. The performance of the null lens was examined for silicone IOL’s with <i>in situ</i> powers from 16 to 24 diopters. Improvements in resolution, resolution efficiency, and modulation transfer function were obtained over the tested power range.
