Description

    CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION
  • This application claims the benefit of U.S. Provisional Application No. 60/029,284, filed Feb. 15, 2008.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • 1. Field of the Invention
  • The present invention relates generally to ophthalmic lenses and more specifically to intraocular lenses having an extended depth of focus.
  • 2. Background
  • Intraocular lenses (IOLs) are commonly used to replace the natural lens of the eye under cataract conditions. Alternatively, the natural lens may be replaced to correct other visual conditions, for example, to provide accommodation or pseudo-accommodation in the event a subject develops presbyopia and has diminished focusing capability on both distant objects and near objects. “Accommodation” is the ability of the eye to change focus from near to far, far to near, and all distances in between. As presbyopia progresses, accommodation ability generally decreases. For example, with presbyopia, which usually begins at around age 40, the lens becomes less flexible. As the ciliary muscle contracts to move the lens forward, the lens typically resists due to presbyopia. Accommodating and/or multifocal intraocular lenses may be used to restore at least some degree of accommodative or pseudo-accommodative ability.
  • Accommodating intraocular lenses (AIOLs) are generally configured to focus on objects over a range of distances typically by moving axially and/or by changing shape in response to an ocular force produced by the ciliary muscle, zonules, and/or capsular bag of the eye. Current accommodating intraocular lenses are capable of providing about 0.5 diopter of objective accommodation. Multifocal intraocular lenses (MFIOLs) provide a pseudo-accommodation by simultaneously providing two or more foci, for example, one to provide distant vision and the other to provide near vision. This pseudo-accommodation may have some trade-off, such as dysphotopsia (e.g., halos or glare), reduced contrast sensitivity due to the continual presence of defocused light, reduced intermediate vision, pupil dependent performance, or the like. Over time, patients with multifocal intraocular lenses generally select the focus that provides the sharper image and ignore other blurred images.
  • Another approach to providing some degree of simulated accommodation is by extending the depth of focus of a traditional monofocal lens so that objects over a broader range of distances are simultaneously resolved. This approach also has some trade-off with reduced contrast sensitivity. Examples of this approach are discussed in U.S. Pat. Nos. 6,126,286, 6,923,539, and 7,061,692.
  • An intraocular lens is needed that extends the depth of focus of an eye while minimizing the occurrence of one or more factors reducing the optical performance of the eye, such as dysphotopsia, reduced contrast sensitivity, reduced intermediate vision, pupil dependent performance, or the like. More particularly, an intraocular lens is needed that extends the depth of focus of an eye without significantly reducing the in-focus visual acuity of the eye and while minimizing the occurrence of one or more factors reducing the optical performance of the eye, such as dysphotopsia, reduced contrast sensitivity, reduced intermediate vision, pupil dependent performance, or the like. Further, systems and methods for extending the depth of focus of the eye while minimizing the occurrence of one or more factors reducing the optical performance of the eye are needed.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • The present invention is generally directed to ophthalmic devices, systems, and methods for extending the depth of focus of a subject's vision by introducing at least some higher order asymmetric aberration in the eye. The ophthalmic device may be an intraocular lens, a contact lens, a corneal inlay or onlay, a pair of spectacles, or the like. In some embodiments, the ophthalmic device may be a part of the structure of the natural eye, for example, the resulting corneal surface following a refractive procedure, such as a LASIK or PRK procedure. Embodiments of the present invention may find particular use in ophthalmic devices having a multifocal element (e.g., a diffractive or refractive lens producing two or more foci or images) or having accommodative capabilities.
  • In one aspect of the present invention, a lens for ophthalmic use, such as an intraocular lens, is provided. The lens includes an optic having a clear aperture disposed about a central axis. The optic includes a first surface and an opposing second surface. The first and second surfaces are together configured to introduce at least some asymmetric aberration in the eye to increase the depth of focus while maintaining the in-focus visual acuity of the eye. Maintaining in-focus visual acuity is referred to herein as having essentially the same letter acuity or reading acuity and/or having an identical functional acuity, which is regarded as normal for a particular age group, and which does not limit the functional vision. Maintaining in-focus visual acuity specifically excludes super-acuity, that is, acuity that significantly exceeds the acuity associated with normal 20/20 vision. In one embodiment, the ophthalmic lens introduces some degree of coma, or other higher order asymmetric aberration, in the eye while maintaining in-focus visual acuity of the eye
  • In another embodiment, a lens system for an eye is provided, and the lens system includes a first lens having a first optical axis and a second lens adjacent the first lens. The second lens has a second optical axis being non-aligned with the first optical axis. The first lens and second lens are together configured to introduce at least some asymmetric aberration to the eye to extend the depth of focus while maintaining the in-focus visual acuity of the eye.
  • In another embodiment, a method is provided for modifying a depth of focus of an eye. The method includes measuring a wavefront aberration of the eye, determining an in-focus visual acuity of the eye, and determining an asymmetric aberration to be induced in the wavefront aberration of the eye. The depth of focus is extended by the asymmetric aberration when induced in the wavefront aberration and while maintaining the in-focus visual acuity.
  • In other embodiments, the present invention may be used in concert with a multifocal intraocular lens to extend all of the focal points thereof, with an accommodating intraocular lens to extend the functional range of vision available to the patient, with other extended depth of focus techniques, with targeted correction of other higher-order aberrations, with chromatic aberration correction, and the like.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION
  • An ophthalmic lens, an ophthalmic system, and a method of modifying optical characteristics of an eye are provided in accordance with the present invention. In general, at least some asymmetric aberration is introduced in the eye to increase the depth of focus of the eye while maintaining in-focus visual acuity. Maintaining in-focus visual acuity is referred to herein as having essentially the same letter acuity or reading acuity or having an identical functional acuity, which is regarded as normal for a particular age group, and which does not limit the functional vision. Maintaining in-focus visual acuity specifically excludes super-acuity, that is, acuity that significantly exceeds the acuity associated with normal 20/20 vision.
  • In one embodiment, the ophthalmic lens introduces a higher order asymmetric aberration (e.g., some degree of coma or the like) in the eye while maintaining the in-focus visual acuity of the eye. Due to the near-spherical or substantially spherical geometry of the anterior surface of the cornea, two types of aberrations, spherical aberration and coma, may occur. The term “coma” is referred to herein as an optical aberration in which the image of a point source is generally a comet-shaped figure. Spherical aberration and coma are similar to one another by inadequately imaging or focusing rays at the same point. Coma differs from spherical aberration, however, in that a point object is imaged not as a circle but as a comet-shaped figure. Nevertheless, both cases are characterized by a loss of definition at the focal spot. By inducing an asymmetric aberration (e.g., coma or other higher order asymmetric aberration) to the wavefront aberration of a pseudophakic eye, the depth of focus may be increased.
  • In one embodiment, an ophthalmic lens with pre-determined bending factors (e.g., to produce asymmetric aberrations) introduces asymmetric aberration in the eye while maintaining in-focus visual acuity. For example, the ophthalmic lens may be formed with an asymmetric curvature on the anterior side of the corresponding optic, the posterior side of the corresponding optic, or a combination of the anterior and posterior side of the optic. In another embodiment, an ophthalmic lens may be lathe-cut (e.g., the surface of the lens may be lathed) to be rotationally asymmetric. In another embodiment, an ophthalmic lens may be molded to be rotationally asymmetric. For example, U.S. Pat. No. 5,620,720, the entire disclosure of which is incorporated herein, discloses a cast molding technique for forming intraocular lenses.
  • In another embodiment, the lens may be mechanically configured to be tilted or de-centered in the eye (e.g., by a controlled and pre-determined degree). For example, U.S. Pat. Nos. 5,567,365 and 5,571,177 and U.S. patent application Ser. No. 12/239,462 filed Sep. 26, 2008, to Deacon et al, the entire disclosures of which are incorporated herein, disclose various methods for modifying the orientation of an implanted intraocular lens.
  • In another embodiment, an Alvarez lens can be used and positioned to introduce a pre-determined degree of asymmetric aberration. For example, U.S. Pat. No. 3,305,294 discloses an Alvarez lens with lens elements that are movable relative to each other transversely to the optical axis of the lens and PCT Pub. No. WO/2006/025726 discloses an Alvarez-type intraocular lens, both of which are incorporated in entirety herein. In another embodiment, a dual lens system (e.g., axially positioned with respect to one another) that is de-centered with respect to one another may be used.
  • Other higher order asymmetrical aberrations may be used to extend or increase the depth of focus including, but not necessarily limited to, astigmatism, high-order astigmatism, vertical coma, lateral coma, trefoil, and the like, and combinations thereof may also be used. Examples of ophthalmic lenses include, but are not necessarily limited to, intraocular lenses, external lenses, contact lenses, intrastromal lens implants, implantable shaped corneal tissue, and the like.
  • Because each individual vision typically has a unique wavefront characteristic, the ophthalmic lens may similarly have a variety of configurations to introduce the asymmetric aberration while maintaining in-focus visual acuity. Detailed information about the wavefront characteristics associated with the eye (e.g., optical aberrations) may be acquired. Examples of such detailed information include, but are not necessarily limited to, the extent of a desired refractive correction, the location in the eye associated with the correction (e.g., where the correction can be made most effectively), and the like. Wavefront analysis techniques, made possible by devices such as a Hartmann-Shack type sensor, can be used to generate maps of refractive power. Other wavefront analysis techniques and sensors may also be used. The maps of refractive power, or similar refractive power information provided by other means, such as corneal topographs or the like, can then be used to identify and locate the optical aberrations that require correction.
  • The ophthalmic lens may also have multifocal characteristics. With a multifocal lens embodiment, the introduced asymmetric aberration preferably extends the depth of focus associated with all of the focal points of the multifocal lens. In other embodiments, the introduced asymmetric aberration can extend the depth of focus in either the near or the far focus position. In an accommodating lens embodiment, the lens with asymmetric aberration extends the functional range of vision available to the patient. Furthermore, the introduction of a pre-determined degree of asymmetric aberration (e.g., while maintaining in-focus visual acuity) can be combined with other extended depth of focus concepts, such as binary phase masks, lenses that utilize hyperfocality, zonal aspheric lenses, low-add multifocal lenses, and the like, with targeted correction of other higher-order aberrations, such as spherical aberration and/or astigmatism (e.g., using a toric lens), and/or with chromatic aberration correction (e.g., using a diffractive monofocal lens).
  • Referring to the drawings, a human eye 10 is shown in FIG. 1 after an intraocular lens 1 has been inserted. Light enters (e.g., from the left of FIG. 1) and passes through a cornea 14, an anterior chamber 15, an iris 16, and enters a capsular bag 17. Prior to insertion, the natural lens (not shown) occupies essentially the entire interior of the capsular bag 17. After insertion, the capsular bag 17 may house the intraocular lens 1, in addition to a fluid that occupies the remaining volume and equalizes the pressure in the eye 10. The intraocular lens 1 is preferably constructed to introduce an asymmetric aberration in the eye 10 without significantly reducing the in-focus visual acuity thereof. After passing through the intraocular lens 1, light exits a posterior wall 18 of the capsular bag 17, passes through a posterior chamber 11, and strikes the retina 12, which detects the light and converts it to a signal transmitted through the optic nerve to the brain.
  • The intraocular lens 1 has an optic 1 a with a refractive index greater than the surrounding fluid. The optic 1 a has an anterior surface 2 facing away from the retina 12 and a posterior surface 3 facing toward the retina 12. In this embodiment, the anterior surface 2 and posterior surface 3 are shaped to induce a predetermined amount of coma in the eye 10. In one embodiment, the anterior surface 2 is rotationally asymmetric with respect to the posterior surface 3. The optic 1 a is held in place by a haptic 19, which couples the optic 1 a to the capsular bag 17 after insertion. In the illustrated embodiment, the optic 1 a is suspended within the capsular bag 17, for example, to allow accommodative movement of the optic 1 a of the intraocular lens 1 along the optical axis, such as may be found with accommodative intraocular lenses. Alternatively, the intraocular lens 1 may be disposed adjacent to, and even biased against, the posterior wall 18, for example, to reduce cellular growth on the optic 1 a. The optic 1 a may be either a monofocal intraocular lens or a multifocal intraocular lens.
  • A well-corrected eye typically forms an image at the retina 12. If the lens 1 has too much or too little power, the image shifts axially along the optical axis away from the retina 12, toward or away from the lens. The power required to focus on a close or near object is generally greater than the power required to focus on a distant or far object. The difference in optical power between the farthest and nearest object that may be brought into focus by a particular lens or lens system is typically referred to as an “add power” (e.g., in the case of a multifocal intraocular lens) or a “range of accommodation” or “accommodative range” (e.g., in the case of an accommodating intraocular lens that responds to ciliary muscle contraction to move axially and/or deform so as to change the optical power of the optic). A normal range of add power or accommodation is generally about 4 Diopters at the plane of the optic 1 a, although this number may be as low as 3 or fewer Diopters or as high as 6 or more Diopters based on the geometry of the eye.
  • In many cases, the optical system of the eye may be well approximated by a thin lens model, shown schematically in FIG. 2. Such a thin lens system 20 may be used to predict the location of an image for a given object distance, Z. In addition, the thin lens system 20 may also be used to predict the power required of a lens to bring objects at the object distance, Z, into focus on the retina. This may be used to predict or determine in-focus visual acuity for a particular optical system or eye.
  • A marginal light ray 29 originates at the base of an object 21, where the ray 29 crosses an optical axis 28. The ray 29 passes through an optional spectacle 22 having a power, Φspectacle, and enters the eye. The eye itself is represented by a cornea 23 with a power, Φcornea, an aperture stop (or pupil) 24, an intraocular lens 25 with a power, Φlens, and a retina 26. An image 27 is formed of the object 21 at the location where the marginal ray 29 intersects the optical axis 28. If the object 21 is “in focus,” then the image 27 is formed at the retina 26. If the object is “out of focus,” then the image is translated axially away from the retina 26, being either too close to the lens or too far from the lens. The space between the object 21 and the cornea 23 is assumed to be filled with air, having a refractive index of nair (e.g., typically 1). The space between the cornea 23 and the retina 26 is assumed to be filled with a fluid having a refractive index of neye.
  • One exemplary figure of merit for tracking the performance of visual systems is known as a Modulation Transfer Function (MTF). The MTF generally indicates the ability of an optical system to reproduce (e.g., transfer) various levels of detail (e.g., spatial frequencies) from the object to the image. MTF is particularly desirable as a figure of merit because it may be both predicted by simulation and approximately measured through the visual response of real patients.
  • The MTF is related to the apparent contrast of alternating bright and dark bars of an image. If the MTF is 1, then the bright areas generally appear completely bright, and the dark areas generally appear completely dark. If the MTF is 0, both areas appear as gray, with generally little to no distinction between bright and dark areas. Typical MTF values lie between 0 and 1 with some light bleeding into the dark areas and some darkness bleeding into the light areas.
  • The MTF has a dependence on spatial frequency, which is inversely related to the width of the alternating bright and dark bars in the image. Note that MTF is particularly suited for human vision testing, in that the spatial frequency may be controlled during a test by controlling the size of a letter “E,” where the widths of the prongs in the “E” have a prescribed size. MTF is measured along two orthogonal axes (e.g., an x-axis and a y-axis or a horizontal axis and a vertical axis).
  • Spatial frequency is typically reported in units of line pairs per mm at the retina. At low spatial frequencies (e.g., represented with wider bars), the MTF is generally higher than at high spatial frequencies (e.g., represented with narrower bars). For frequencies greater than a predetermined cutoff spatial frequency, the MTF is 0. This is a property governed by the physics of diffraction. MTF may be calculated in a straightforward numerical manner, either by a ray-tracing program such as Oslo or Zemax, by another existing simulation tool, or by self-written code, all of which provide generally equivalent results with varying degrees of sophistication.
  • FIG. 3 is a plot of minimum readable letter size versus defocus, for a variety of aberration corrections, for a first subject (SM). FIG. 4 is a plot of defocus versus minimum readable letter size, for a variety of aberration corrections, for a second subject (EV). FIG. 5 is a plot of defocus versus minimum readable letter size, for a variety of aberration corrections, for a third subject (HW). Six cases were used for comparison: case 1 is based on the naturally occurring higher-order aberrations of the subject with only lower-order astigmatism and defocus corrected; case 2 is based on a correction of all aberrations (e.g., no wavefront aberrations); case 3 is based on a correction of all aberrations except for a positive spherical aberration (e.g., 0.22 μm); case 4 is based on a correction of all aberrations except for a negative spherical aberration (e.g., −0.22 μm)); case 5 is based on a correction of all aberrations except for a coma aberration ((e.g., 0.22 μm)); and, case 6 is based on a correction of all aberrations except for an astigmatism aberration (e.g., 0.22 μm). As best shown in FIGS. 3-5, the introduction of coma (e.g., case 5) provided the greatest depth of focus for all three subjects.
  • FIG. 6 is a plot of depth of focus versus the variety of aberration corrections shown in FIGS. 3-5, for each of the subjects. FIG. 7 is a graph of the depth of focus versus the variety of aberration corrections shown in FIGS. 3-5 illustrating the average focus depth for each of the variety of aberration corrections. FIG. 8 is a graph of the minimum readable letter size (e.g., in the best-focus position) versus the variety of aberration corrections shown in FIGS. 3-5 illustrating the minimum letter size for each of the variety of aberration corrections.
  • FIGS. 3-5 illustrate examples of induced aberrations that increase the depth of focus, while maintaining the in-focus acuity. in-focus acuity is explicitly shown in FIG. 8. For example, the cases 1 and 5 in FIG. 8 show the same in-focus acuity (letter size), while the depth of focus of these cases differ (such as shown in FIG. 7). Similarly, cases 5 and 6 in FIG. 8 show the same in-focus acuity (letter size), while the depth of focus of these cases differ (FIG. 7). As a third example, cases 2 and 3 in FIG. 8 show the same in-focus acuity (e.g., based on letter size), while the depth of focus of these cases differ (as shown in FIG. 7). This demonstrates that by adding aberrations and/or changing the aberrations in the eye, the depth of focus of the eye can be increased, without changing the in-focus acuity.

  • A depth of focus for a lens may be defined based on any number of criteria, such as a threshold of any of the MTF curves, a particular increase in spot size or wavefront error, a particular decrease in Strehl Ratio, or any other suitable criterion. FIG. 12 is a plot of inverse letter size versus defocus illustrating a depth of focus determination at a threshold, in one example. There are many possible definitions of depth of focus that many be used, as well as many other figures of merit that may be used for the definitions. For instance, any or all of the following optical metrics may be used: MTF at a particular spatial frequency, MTF volume (integrated over a particular range of spatial frequencies, either in one dimension or in two dimensions), Strehl ratio, encircled energy, RMS spot size, peak-to-valley spot size, RMS wavefront error, peak-to-valley wavefront error, and edge transition width. Given the many possible figures of merit, there are several ways to evaluate them to define a depth of focus.
  • One way is to define an absolute threshold, where the crossings of the figure of merit with the threshold define the depth of focus. For instance, the depth of focus may be defined as the region over which the MTF or MTF volume exceeds a threshold of 0.1. Alternatively, any suitable MTF absolute threshold may be used, such as 0.15, 0.2, 0.25, 0.3 and so forth. Alternatively, the depth of focus may be defined as the region over which the RMS spot size is less than a particular threshold value.
