Abstract

This study presents a practical method for reconstructing the optical system of personalized eye models by using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Monocular images were obtained from a young (20-year-old) healthy subject viewing at a near point (10 cm). Each magnetic resonance image was first analyzed using several commercial software to capture the profile of each optical element of the human eye except for the anterior lens surface, which could not be determined because it overlapped the ciliary muscle. The missing profile was substituted with a modified profile from a generic eye model. After the data—including the refractive indices from a generic model—were input in ZEMAX, we obtained a reasonable initial layout. By further considering the resolution of the MRI, the model was optimized to match the optical performance of a healthy eye. The main benefit of having a personalized eye model is the ability to quantitatively identify wide-angle ocular aberrations, which were corrected by the designed free-form spectacle lens.
