Abstract

Passive ophthalmic optic devices correct refractive defects of the eye but are not designed to employ neural adaptation processes. An extended depth of focus technology is implemented on conventional refractive devices, such as spectacles and contact lenses, and its testing is described. This technology is capable of simultaneously correcting all refractive errors, such as myopia, hyperopia, presbyopia, regular/irregular astigmatism, as well as their combinations. This is achieved by exploiting the capacity of the visual system for adaptation to contrast as well as its capability of creating a coherent continuous visual field out of discrete lines of sight.
