Simulating decreased visual acuity with a contact lens system

, : Simulating decreased visual acuity with a contact lens system. American Journal of Ophthalmology 92(6): 863-864

A soft contact lens with a central depression was used into which a hard contact lens can be fitted to simulate conditions that cause decreased [human] visual acuity. This piggyback system can simulate central scotoma, various peripheral field defects, and opacities of the media.

A new method using a hard contact lens. An irregular corneal surface degrades the optical transmission and limits the effectiveness of the potential acuity meter (PAM) in predicting post-keratoplasty visual acuity.
