Optical Fourier filtering for whole lens assessment of progressive power lenses



Optical Fourier filtering for whole lens assessment of progressive power lenses



Ophthalmic and Physiological Optics 20(4): 281-289



Four binary filter designs for use in an optical Fourier filtering set-up were evaluated when taking quantitative measurements and when qualitatively mapping the power variation of progressive power lenses (PPLs). The binary filters tested were concentric ring, linear grating, grid and "chevron" designs. The chevron filter was considered best for quantitative measurements since it permitted a vernier acuity task to be used for measuring the fringe spacing, significantly reducing errors, and it also gave information on the polarity of the lens power. The linear grating filter was considered best for qualitatively evaluating the power variation. Optical Fourier filtering and a Nidek automatic focimeter were then used to measure the powers in the distance and near portions of five PPLs of differing design. Mean measurement error was 0.04 D with a maximum value of 0.13 D. Good qualitative agreement was found between the iso-cylinder plots provided by the manufacturer and the Fourier filter fringe patterns for the PPLs indicating that optical Fourier filtering provides the ability to map the power distribution across the entire lens aperture without the need for multiple point measurements. Arguments are presented that demonstrate that it should be possible to derive both iso-sphere and iso-cylinder plots from the binary filter patterns.
