Abstract

Purpose

To compare the optical quality measurements obtained from the double-pass system and ocular aberrations, subjective visual acuity, and contrast sensitivity score in pseudophakic eyes.

Methods

Three months after cataract surgery, modulation transfer function (MTF) cutoff frequency, Strehl ratio, objective scatter index, and objective pseudoaccommodation obtained from the double-pass system were compared with total aberration, higher-order aberration, and spherical aberration obtained from ray-tracing aberrometer. In addition, parameters of the double-pass system were compared with subjective visual acuity and the contrast sensitivity score.

Results

Forty eyes of 40 patients were included. The MTF cutoff frequency and Strehl ratio were negatively correlated with total aberration (r = −0.503, p = 0.003; r = −0.509, p = 0.003, respectively) and subjective visual acuity (r = −0.453, p = 0.007; r = −0.354, p = 0.040, respectively). The objective scatter index was positively correlated with total aberration (r = 0.451, p = 0.024) and subjective visual acuity (r = 0.516, p = 0.008). The MTF cutoff frequency showed a correlation with contrast sensitivity score under photopic and mesopic conditions.

Conclusions

Optical quality parameters obtained from the double-pass system were correlated with ocular aberrations, subjective visual acuity, and contrast sensitivity score in pseudophakic eyes.
