  • FIELD OF INVENTION
  • [0002]
    The invention relates to ocular wavefront-correction profiling.
  • BACKGROUND
  • [0003]
    In the course of daily life, one typically regards objects located at different distances from the eye. To selectively focus on such objects, the focal length of the eye's lens must change. In a healthy eye, this is achieved through the contraction of a ciliary muscle that is mechanically coupled to the lens. To the extent that the ciliary muscle contracts, it deforms the lens. This deformation changes the focal length of the lens. By selectively deforming the lens in this manner, it becomes possible to focus on objects that are at different distances from the eye. This process of selectively focusing on objects at different distances is referred to as “accommodation.”
  • [0004]
    As a person ages, the lens loses plasticity. As a result, it becomes increasingly difficult to deform the lens sufficiently to focus on objects at different distances. This condition is known as presbyopia. Refractive errors caused by such conditions as hyperopia, myopia, as well as aberrations due to irregularities in the eye (e.g., in the cornea or in the natural crystalline lens) can also degrade one's ability to focus on an object. To compensate for this loss of function, it is useful to provide different optical corrections for focusing on objects at different distances.
  • [0005]
    One approach to applying different optical corrections is to carry different pairs of glasses and to swap glasses as the need arises. For example, one might carry reading glasses for reading and a separate pair of distance glasses for driving.
  • [0006]
    In another approach, bifocal lenses assist accommodation by integrating two different optical corrections onto the same lens. The lower part of the lens is ground to provide a correction suitable for reading or other close-up work while the remainder of the lens is ground to provide a correction for distance vision. To regard an object, a wearer of a bifocal lens need only maneuver the head so that rays extending between the object-of-regard and the pupil pass through that portion of the bifocal lens having an optical correction appropriate for the range to that object.
  • [0007]
    Laser eye surgery techniques for improving focusing ability involve laser ablation of a portion of the eye. In Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) surgery, a surgeon uses an excimer laser to remove tissue from the surface of the cornea. In Laser-Asisted In Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) surgery or Laser Epithelial Keratomileusis (LASEK) surgery, a surgeon removes tissue under the surface of the cornea by lifting a portion (a “flap”) of the cornea. Tissue is selectively removed to reshape the cornea so that less deformation of the lens is necessary for accommodation. Customized laser eye surgery based on measurements of a subject's eye can also compensate for some wavefront aberrations. During laser eye surgery, the cornea is reshaped to improve vision for a single distance of regard. Vision at other distances may remain degraded. For example, even after laser eye surgery, a subject may still need to use glasses to correct far vision. It may be desirable to improve vision at more than one distance of regard.

  • DESCRIPTION
  • [0041]
    Referring to FIG. 1, an ocular wavefront-correction profiling system 100 includes a wavefront mapping module 102 that provides a wavefront aberration map of a subject's eye as input to a profile calculation module 104. The profile calculation module 104 also takes pupil conditions 106 as input. The pupil conditions 106 can include, for example, the size (e.g., radius) and position of the pupil relative to the limbus of the eye. Alternatively, the size and position of the pupil can be registered relative to any other remarkable ocular structure or marks. The profile calculation module 104 includes a mode solver 108 to determine a wavefront-correction profile 110 that can be used to perform laser ablation on the cornea to compensate for loss of focusing ability for multiple distances of regard (e.g., a near and a far distance of regard), as described in more detail below. Alternatively, the wavefront-correction profile 110 can be used to shape (e.g., using laser ablation) an optical element including contact lenses or spectacles (e.g., for testing the profile with feedback from the subject before surgery is performed) or an intraocular implant. For example, the wavefront-correction profile 110 can be used to shape a surface of a phakic or pseudophakic intraocular lens before insertion and placement.
  • [0042]
    Alternatively, in some embodiments, the system 100 can take pupil and wavefront measurements after insertion and placement of an adjustable implant (e.g., a light-adjustable lens (LAL) whose shape changes in response to applied optical radiation, or a nematic liquid-crystal lens whose index of refraction varies in response to an applied electric field). The measurements would subsequently be used to selectively modify optical properties of the adjustable implant (e.g., thickness of a LAL, or index of a nematic liquid crystal lens) according to the wavefront-correction profile 110. The wavefront mapping module 102 can use any of a variety of techniques for measuring or estimating a wavefront aberration map with respect to a reference surface (e.g., a plane). For example, the wavefront mapping module 102 can use measurement techniques and/or devices such as a spatially resolved refractometer, laser ray tracing, a Tcherning aberroscope, a Shack-Hartmann wavefront sensor, or dynamic skiascopy. The collected wavefront data represents aberrations over an area bounded by the subject's pharmacologically dilated pupil. Alternatively, the wavefront mapping module 102 can estimate wavefront aberrations based on anatomical measurements of a portion of the subject's eye. For example, a wavefront aberration map can be estimated from a map of corneal topography. Thus, the wavefront aberration map can represent aberrations due to propagation through some or all of the structures in the eye. The wavefront mapping module 102 provides a mathematical description of the wavefront aberration map to the profile calculation module 104. One convenient mathematical description of the wavefront aberration map is a Zernike spatial mode expansion of the wavefront aberration map W(ρ,θ) (in polar coordinates) :
  • [0000]
    W ( ρ , θ ) = n = 2 N m = - n n p ( m ) = p ( n ) C n m Z n m ( ρ , θ )
  • [0000]
    where the Zn m(ρ,θ) are mutually orthogonal Zernike basis functions (or “spatial modes”) of radial order n and angular frequency m and Cn m are the corresponding weighting coefficients. The spatial modes are defined over a unit circle (i.e., ρ≦1) that corresponds to the pupil over which the wavefront aberrations are defined. The radial order n is summed from 2 to N since the radial orders n=0 and n=1 (corresponding to constant and tilt terms) do not contribute to the aberrations in the wavefront aberration map. The angular frequency m is summed from −n to n, where p(m)=p(n) (i.e., the parity of m is the same as the parity of n). Thus, for an expansion up to the fourth radial order (N=4), the expansion includes the spatial modes: Z2 −2(ρ,θ), Z2 0(ρ,θ), Z2 2(ρ,θ), Z3 −3(ρ,θ), Z3 −1(ρ,η), Z3 1(ρ,θ), Z3 3(ρ,θ), Z4 −4(ρ,θ), Z4 −2(ρ,θ), Z4 0(ρ,θ), Z4 2(ρ,θ), and Z4 4(ρ,θ). The spatial modes, when normalized to have zero mean and unit variance over the unit circle, are given by:
  • [0000]
    Z n m ( ρ , θ ) = { 2 ( n + 1 ) R n m ( ρ ) cos ( m θ ) , if m > 0 2 ( n + 1 ) R n m ( ρ ) sin ( m θ ) , if m < 0 ( n + 1 ) R n 0 ( ρ ) , if m = 0 where , R n m ( ρ ) = s = 0 ( n - m ) / 2 ( - 1 ) s ( n - s ) ! s ! [ ( n + m ) / 2 - s ] ! [ ( n - m ) / 2 - s ] ! ρ n - 2 s
  • [0043]
    Referring to FIGS. 2A and 2B, the wavefront aberration map W(ρ,θ) represents a deviation of a wavefront 200 from a reference surface 202 over a pupil area 204. The wavefront 200 represents the effects of a spherical wavefront propagating from a point P on the retina 206, through the anatomical structures of the eye (e.g., crystalline lens 208 and cornea 210), to the reference surface 202 just in front of the cornea 210. In this example, the reference surface 202 is flat (i.e., planar) and corresponds to an eye that is fixated on a “far” point (i.e., the farthest possible distance of regard). Alternatively, the reference surface 202 can have other shapes (e.g., spherical) for other assumed states of the eye. If the structures of the eye were “perfect” (i.e., if they caused no aberrations), the wavefront 200 would be flat, and would thus have W(ρ,θ)=0 over the pupil area 204.
  • [0044]
    The pupil area 204 and its location can be measured for different lighting and fixation (i.e., distance of regard) conditions. The center O of the pupil area 204 is measured relative to the center O, of the limbus 212. The coordinates of a point ρ,θ in the aberration map W(ρ,θ)=0 are defined in terms of a polar coordinate system centered at O. The radius R of the pupil area 204 is also measured. The largest size of the pupil area 204 corresponds to a pharmacologically dilated eye. Since the pupil area 204 is measured from outside the cornea 210, the size of the pupil area 204 may be different from the actual internal size 214 of the pupil.
  • [0045]
    The pupil conditions 106 for a subject's eye are measured under various lighting and fixation conditions (e.g., using a pupillometer or camera). For example, room lighting is varied from less than 1 lux to 1000 lux while the subject fixates on points at specific distances. The pupil conditions 106 include measurements of pupil size and position for fixation distances and room lighting that correspond to a subject's visual needs and/or desires for “far visual conditions” (e.g., driving at night, watching movies, working outdoors, etc.) and for “near visual conditions”(e.g., reading with bright light, looking at x-rays, playing plano, etc.) for bifocal correction. Pupil conditions for more than two fixation conditions, e.g., for trifocal or multifocal correction, can be included. A pupil condition is measured or estimated based on a desired visual condition (e.g., a far or near visual condition). A desired visual condition can be measured directly or inferred on the basis of measurements indicative of a subject's intent to accommodate for the desired visual condition (e.g., measurement of contraction a subject's ciliary muscle). Such inferred measurements are fully described in U.S. Pat. No. 6,638,304, incorporated herein by reference in its entirety.
  • [0046]
    Referring to FIG. 3, in one embodiment, the pupil conditions 106 include three origin and radius measurements of a subject's pupil relative to the origin OL of the limbus 210. A first origin O1 and radius R1 correspond to a pharmacologically dilated pupil 301. A second origin O2 and radius R2 correspond to a scotopic (i.e., naturally dilated) pupil 302 while the eye is in a desired far fixation condition. A third origin O3 and radius R3 correspond to a constricted pupil 303 while the eye is in a desired near fixation condition.
  • [0047]
    The profile calculation module 104 uses relative pupil condition parameters in calculations performed by the mode solver 108. The parameter S represents the relative ratio of pupil sizes: S1=1, S2=R2/R1, S3=R3/R1. The parameter di represents the distance of the shift between pupil conditions: d1=0, d2=d(O1,O2), d3=d(O1,O3), where the function d(O1,O2) gives the distance between origins {right arrow over (O)}1 and {right arrow over (O)}2 normalized by R1. Non-zero values of d2 d3 , etc. represent shifting (or “decentration”) of the pupil such that the corresponding pupil positions are non-concentric with respect to one another. The parameter a represents the angle from the horizontal of the shift between pupil conditions: a2=∠({right arrow over (O1x1)},{right arrow over (O1O2)}), a3=∠({right arrow over (O1x1)},{right arrow over (O1O3)}), where x1 is a point on the x axis of a Cartesian coordinate system centered at O1.
  • [0048]
    In other embodiments, more or fewer pupil conditions are used. The ratio of pupil sizes can be weighted selectively.
  • [0049]
    The profile calculation module 104 determines an “add” parameter ΔC2 0 that corresponds to the amount of focusing power (in Zernike RMS units) needed to supplement a subject's existing accommodation ability so that the subject can focus an image on the retina in the near fixation condition of {right arrow over (O)}3. Any of a variety of techniques can be used to estimate ΔC2 0. For example, a “glass reading test” can be performed on the subject to determine aberrations in an eye as a function of a subject's accommodation. Optionally, other “add” parameters can be estimated to more accurately represent the changes in aberrations between the far and near pupil and fixation conditions, for example, ΔC4 0, ΔC6 0, etc. A wavefront aberration map can be obtained through a subject's non-pharmacologically dilated pupil to assist in estimating the add parameters. The change of particular aberrations (such as spherical aberration) as a function of accommodation can be measured from the aberration map and used to determine the corresponding “add” parameter for that particular aberration (e.g., ΔC4 0 for spherical aberration).
  • [0050]
    The wavefront mapping module 102 provides “reference coefficients” for the spatial mode expansion of the wavefront aberration map W(ρ,θ), which is measured through the pupil (of radius R1) of the pharmacologically dilated eye. The coordinates of a point ρ,θ in the aberration map W(ρ,θ) are defined in terms of a polar coordinate system centered at {right arrow over (O)}1. The reference coefficients Cn M are input into the mode solver 108 along with the relative pupil condition parameters S2, S3, d2, d3, a2, a3, and the add parameter ΔC2 0.
  • [0051]
    The mode solver 108 determines a set of “target coefficients” and one or more sets of “modified coefficients.” The target coefficients Cn m(1) correspond to a spatial mode expansion of a target wavefront aberration map representing a desired “target wavefront profile” for optical properties (e.g., surface shape) associated with a subject's vision (e.g., a subject's vision after cornea shaping or after contact lens shaping). The ocular wavefront-correction profiling system 100 generates a wavefront-correction profile 110 based on the difference between the “target wavefront profile” and a “reference wavefront profile” corresponding to the reference coefficients of the subject's pre-operative wavefront profile.
  • [0052]
    The target coefficients represent solutions satisfying one or more constraints on the modified coefficients. The modified coefficients correspond to a spatial mode expansion of a modified wavefront aberration map due to the effects of constriction of the pupil and decentration of the pupil. In one embodiment, the constraints on two sets of modified coefficients Cn m(2) and Cn m(3) include the following constraints on the modified “defocus coefficient” (i.e., coefficient with n=2 and m=0):
  • [0000]

    C 2 0(2)=0
  • [0000]

    C2 0(3)=ΔC2 0
  • [0000]
    where C2 0(2) is a modified defocus coefficient based on the shift in pupil conditions from the pharmacologically dilated pupil 301 to the scotopic pupil 302, and C2 0(3) is the modified defocus coefficient based on the shift in pupil conditions from the scotopic pupil 302 to the constricted pupil 303.
  • [0053]
    Other constraints are possible some of which can be expressed as a linear combination of the modified coefficients. For example, the mode solver 108 can include constraints on the relative sizes of different coefficients (e.g., based on empirically derived preferences for some coefficients over others).
  • [0054]
    Target coefficients are selected based on a value of a metric compared to a threshold. For example, the metric may include the root mean square (RMS) of the target coefficients or the metric may include any quadratic function of the target coefficients. Each target coefficient can be weighted selectively. Initially, all the weights are equal and set to 1. The weights are then varied in the process of computing different candidate solutions.
  • [0055]
    The modified coefficients Cn m(2) and Cn m(3) are calculated as a linear function of the target coefficients Cn′ m′(1):
  • [0000]
    C n m ( k ) = n = 0 N m = - n n p ( m ) = p ( n ) P n m n m C n m ( 1 )
  • [0000]
    The coefficients n mPn′ m′ of the four dimensional array P are calculated as integrals over the unit disk, using orthogonality of Zernike polynomials:
  • [0000]
    P n m n m = 1 π 0 1 - π + π Z n m Z n m ρ · ρ · θ
  • [0000]
    where Zn′ m′ is calculated in the polar coordinate system centered at Ok.
  • [0056]
    For example, for an expansion up to N=6, the modified defocus coefficients C2 0(2) and C2 0(3) are calculated as follows (with k=2,3 and assuming Rk<R1):
  • [0000]

    i C2 0(k)=S k 2 C 2 0(1)+2√{square root over (6)}S k 2 d k sin(a k)C 3 −1(1)+2√{square root over (6)}S k 2 d k cos(a k)C3 1(1)+2√{square root over (30)}S k 2 d k 2 sin(2a k)C 4 2(1)+2√{square root over (15)}S k 2(S k 2−4d k 2)C 4 0(1)+2√{square root over (30)}S k 2 d k 2 cos(2a k)C4 2(1)+20S k 2 d k 3 sin(3a k)C 5 −3(1)+6S k 2 d k(5S k 2−4+10d k 2)sin(a k)C 5 −1(1)+6Sk 2 d k(5S k 2−4+10d k 2)cos(a k)C 5 1(1)+20S k 2 d k 3 cos(3a k)C 5 3(1)+5√{square root over (42)}S k 2 d k 2 sin(4a k)C 6 −4(1)+5√{square root over (42)}S k 2 d k(3S k 2−2+4d k 2)sin(2a k)C 6 −2(1)+√{square root over (21 )}S k 2 d k 2(3S k 2−5Sk 2+30Sk 2 d k 2+2−d k 4)C 6 0(1)+5√{square root over (42)}S k 2 d k 2(3S k 2−2+4d k 2)cos(2a k)C 2 6(1)+5√{square root over (42)}S k 2 d k 2 cos(4a k)C 6 4(1)

    where Sk=Rk/R1, dk=d(O1,Ok) and ak=∠({right arrow over (O1x1)},{right arrow over (O1Ok)}).
  • [0057]
    The mode solver 108 selects the target coefficients that yield a metric satisfying a threshold condition. One threshold condition uses the point-spread functions of the modified wavefront aberration maps W(2)(ρ,θ)and W(3)(ρ,θ)that correspond to the modified coefficients C2 0(2) and C2 0(3), and their respective pupil conditions. For example, a point-spread function PSF is calculated as:
  • [0000]
    P S F = FT { A ( ρ , θ ) exp ( 2 π λ W ( ρ , θ ) ) ) } 2

    where FT corresponds to a Fourier Transform, A(ρ,θ) is an aperture function defining the circular pupil area for the given pupil conditions, and k is the wavelength of light used to measure W(ρ,θ). For the reference coefficients for the spatial mode expansion of the wavefront aberration map W(ρ,θ) that is measured through the pupil (of radius R1) of the pharmacologically dilated eye, the aperture function is A(ρ,θ)=1 for ρ≦1, and A(ρ,θ)=0 otherwise. For the modified coefficients, the aperture function is modified according to the corresponding relative pupil constriction and decentration. The threshold condition, for example, can include comparing a value of a “spread metric” based on the point-spread functions for the given pupil conditions to values of the spread metric for a diffraction-limited Airy disk pattern: |FT{u(ρ/ρ0)}|2, where u(ρ) is the unit step function and ρ0 is the relative pupil size for the given pupil conditions (e.g., ρ0=R2/R1=S1). One such metric is the second moment of the PSF divided by the second moment of the corresponding Airy disk pattern. For two sets of pupil conditions, the threshold condition may compare the sum or the product of their respective values of the spread metric to a threshold value.
  • [0058]
    Initially, the mode solver 108 sets the target coefficients to the reference coefficients measured with the pharmacologically dilated pupil 301: Cn m(1)=Cn m. Then the mode solver 108 searches in some neighborhood around these initial conditions for values of the target coefficients Cn m(1) that satisfy the constraints for the modified defocus coefficients and minimize the selected error criterion. The mode solver 108 may generate multiple “candidate solutions” (i.e., candidate sets of target coefficients) that satisfy the constraints and yield the same or similar minimized values of the metric. In such cases, the ocular wavefront-correction profiling system 100 can select one or more of the candidate solutions according to the threshold condition. The threshold condition can be based on any of a variety of image plane metrics generated for each of the candidate solutions.
  • [0059]
    Examples of other metrics that can be used are the Optical Transfer Function (OTF), which is the Fourier Transform of the PSF, the Modulation Transfer Function (MTF), which is the magnitude of the OTF, and the Phase Transfer Function (PTF), which is the phase of the OTF. These metrics can be calculated for each of the pupil conditions and any wavelength. In some embodiments, the MTF for white light is calculated for the different candidate solutions. A final solution can be chosen as the candidate solution that satisfies the constraints and that maximizes the volume under a three-dimensional plot of the MTF for one or both of the largest and the smallest pupil sizes.
  • [0060]
    Alternatively, the ocular wavefront-correction profiling system 100 can generate multiple wavefront-correction profiles (e.g., 5-10) based on the multiple candidate solutions. Multiple “preview lenses” can be made to allow a subject to test the visual effects of the various profiles (e.g., through visual acuity tests) and to select one to use. For example, the preview lenses can be used in trial frames, held by hand, or used as a contact lens. Alternatively, the multiple candidate solutions can be represented by a deformable mirror array to directly distort the wavefront before transmission to the subject's eye. A subject can view various objects at various pupil sizes and/or illumination conditions through an optical system with deformable mirrors that simulate the candidate solutions. The subject can then choose the best compromise or best solution. These or other techniques can be used to simulate different candidate solutions.

    The wavefront-correction profile 110 can optionally account for predicted postoperative biological effects (e.g., wound healing) of a surgical procedure. For wavefront guided laser ablation of the cornea, the profile 110 enables visual correction for multiple pupil and fixation conditions to be performed in only a single surgical procedure. Thus, instead of correcting vision by optimizing accommodation and minimizing higher order aberrations for a single set of pupil and fixation conditions, the ocular wavefront-correction profiling system 100 can produce a profile 110 that incorporates selectively induced aberrations to trade-off correcting vision for multiple sets of pupil and fixation conditions.

    FIGS. 4A-4H, 5A-5H, and 6A-6H show results from three exemplary solutions from the mode solver 108. The pupil conditions for these examples were measured from the eye of a 49 year old male subject. The resulting relative pupil condition parameters were S2=0.589, S3=0.405, d2=0, d3=0.013, a2=0, a3=0.64 radians.
  • [0063]
    The value of a given modified defocus coefficient C2 0(i) (in microns) can be calculated based on a selected defocus parameter D (in diopters) using the analytical formula:
  • [0000]
    C 2 0 ( ) = Dr i 2 4 3
  • [0000]
    where ri is the radius of the pupil domain associated with the modified defocus coefficient.
  • [0064]
    For the first exemplary solution, the mode solver 108 used the following constraints on the modified defocus coefficient C2 0(2) (corresponding to the scotopic pupil 302) and the modified defocus coefficient C2 0(3) (corresponding to the constricted pupil 303):
  • [0000]
    C 2 0 ( 2 ) = 0 C 2 0 ( 3 ) = Dr 3 2 4 3
  • [0065]
    The three exemplary solutions differ in the radius r3 of the domain chosen for the calculation of the constraint on C2 0(3). The domain in each example is a circle within the region corresponding to the constricted pupil 303 and centered at O3, but the domain can have a different (e.g., smaller) radius r3 than R3 (i.e., the patient's pupil radius in the desired near fixation condition in the chosen light ambiance). For r3=R3, C2 0(3)=0.1664 microns, and for smaller values of r3, the value of C2 0(3) is smaller. These variations in the size of the domain r3 used for generating alternative solutions enable trade-off between near and far visual conditions. Using a smaller domain for near vision gives “less weight” to the near vision correction and “more weight” to the far vision correction.
  • [0066]
    In the illustrated examples, the domains over which near vision is corrected are centered at O3. Alternatively, the domains can be slightly decentered with respect to O3. The MTF and PSF used as metrics for the near vision solutions are calculated considering the full pupil domain of radius r3=R3. Any of a variety of optimization strategies are possible. For example, strategy to preserve distance vision in some cases would be to used the S3 diameter without modification, but reduce the value of the C20 on S3 for the optimization.
  • [0067]
    The MTF is used as a metric for each of the solutions to satisfy a threshold condition for selecting the target coefficients. In this case, the threshold condition corresponds to the area under the MTF curve being larger than a threshold value. The resulting modified wavefront aberration maps W(2)(ρ,θ)and W(3)(ρ,θ)that satisfy the above constraints on the modified coefficients C2 0(2) and C2 0(3) and have a metric that satisfies the threshold condition are given below. The order of the maps is N=6.
