Abstract

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 in situ powers from 16 to 24 diopters. Improvements in resolution, resolution efficiency, and modulation transfer function were obtained over the tested power range.
