Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to compare peripheral higher order aberrations in young

and old emmetropic eyes across the horizontal (±40°) and inferior (–20°) visual field.

Introduction

 

 

People with central visual field loss use eccentric fixation for various visual tasks.

Recently studies have shown that the correction of lower order aberrations (defocus &

astigmatism) can improve eccentric vision in subjects with central visual field loss

(CFL)[1]. The CFL subjects mostly correspond to older age groups who use eccentric

fixation angles up to 20°–30°. While there have been studies comparing the off-axis

lower order aberrations in normal young and old subjects[2], there is only one recent

study, which has compared off-axis higher order aberrations in normal young and old

emmetropic eyes up to 20° (horizontal and vertical) eccentricity[3]. In this study we

have measured off-axis aberrations in a group of 10 young (23 ± 3 years) and 10 old

(57 ± 4 years) emmetropes. The aberrations of the right eye were measured using

COAS-HD VR Hartmann-Shack aberrometer in steps 10° out to ± 40° horizontally and

–20° inferiorly in the visual field. Subjects rotated the eyes to view the fixation targets,

which were red light emitting diodes, placed at 3 meter from the eye. The aberrations

were quantified for a pupil area 5 mm in diameter.

Discussion

 

 

Mixed between-within subject’s analysis of variance of the horizontal coma C13

showed that there was a statistically significant difference between age groups

(p<0.05). The coma increased linearly in both groups from nasal to temporal visual

field. The rate of change was greater in the old (slope = –0.027 μm/deg) compared

to the young (slope = –0.012 μm/deg) emmetropes. In the inferior visual field,

vertical coma C-13 changed linearly in both groups with higher values in old (slope =

0.015 μm/deg) compared to young (slope = 0.006 μm/deg). The mean spherical

aberration was positive in older emmetropes (0.053 μm) compared to young

emmetropes (-0.030 μm). The HO RMS showed a quadratic increase in the

periphery for both age groups. The HO RMS was greater in older emmetropes but it

was not statistically significant (p>0.05) when compared to young emmetropes.

 

Conclusions

 

 

Our results show that there is an increase in coma, spherical aberration, and HO

RMS with age in the periphery.
