Mateusz Jaskulski, Early Stage Researcher of the AGEYE Marie Curie ITN has recently defended his PhD at the University of Murcia, Spain. His research project is entitled “Objective refraction” was carried out under the supervision of Prof. Norberto López-Gil.

His work has resulted in the development of a new tool to calculate and evaluate polychromatic simulated retinal images from aberrometric data, as well as valuable insight into the topics of image quality metrics, depth-of-field during accommodation and evaluation of vision quality after IOL implantation in presbyopic eyes. A new objective refraction metric was developed and validated. The formula was obtained by means of fitting an equivalent sphere to the measured wavefront to the center, and two points equidistant from the center. It allows clinicians to obtain an accurate clinical spherical equivalent value without rescaling/refitting of the wavefront coefficients.
