Abstract

Lower- and higher-order wave-front aberrations of soft contact lenses were accurately measured with a Shack–Hartmann wave-front sensor. The soft contact lenses were placed in a wet cell filled with lens solution to prevent surface deformation and desiccation during measurements. Aberration measurements of conventional toric and multifocal soft contact lenses and a customized soft contact lens have proved that this method is reliable. A Shack–Hartmann wave-front sensor can be used to assess optical quality of both conventional and customized soft contact lenses and to assist in enhancing lens quality control.
