Abstract

In this work we show a conceptually simple and cheap means by which to improve retinal image quality in fundus cameras. We will explain how to build a low-cost variable astigmatism-correcting device with a pair of identical commercial ophthalmic lenses. We have developed and tested a low order aberration compensation device capable of correcting astigmatism prescriptions up to -8.00 D with no significant addition of higher order aberrations. A theoretical description of the device, calibration, and improvement in retinal images without employing any image restoration technique will be shown.
