Abstract

We developed a method to convert aberrometry data obtained in one wavelength to the corresponding data in another wavelength using an eye model. A single map of aberrometry data is used to construct a free-form one-surface eye model. A general algorithm for the surface construction is described and implemented for real aberrometry data. Our method can handle varying conjugate distances of the measurement plane of the aberrometer and can also manage the chief ray prism that may be present. The algorithm is validated with the aid of an artificial plastic eye. The wavefronts in different wavelengths are compared through the Zernike analysis not only for lower-order aberrations, but also for higher-order aberrations. The results show that the changes of the Zernike aberration coefficients due to wavelengths are non-uniform. The defocus term has the highest effect from wavelength changes, which is consistent with the previous literature. Our method is compared with two approximate semi-analytical algorithms. The wavelength adjustments from a multi-surface eye model are contrasted with our method. We prove analytically that the conventional method of wavelength adjustment is based on paraxial analysis. In addition, we provide a method of finding the chief ray using back-projection in some cases and discuss different meanings of prism.
