Novel methodology to improve visual quality

If the optics of an eye shows part that produces deteriorated retinal images, why not to hide them instead to corrected their optics? That is the simple solutions that we have proposed in this article published in Biomedical Optics Express. We spatially modulating the amplitude of light passing into the eye (related to the eye’s transmittance), in contrast to traditional correction of the wavefront phase (related to the local refractive power). Numerical simulations show that masking the aberrated areas at the pupil plane should enhance visual function, especially in highly aberrated eyes. This correction could be implemented in practice using customized contact or intraocular lenses.
