Scaling Zernike expansion coefficients to different pupil sizes.

Author information

Department of Ophthalmology, University of Arizona, Tucson 85711, USA.


Recent developments in technologies to correct aberrations in the eye have fostered extensive research in wave-front sensing of the eye, resulting in many reports of Zernike expansions of wave-front errors of the eye. For different reports of Zernike expansions, to be compared, the same pupil diameter is required. Since no standard pupil size has been established for reporting these results, a technique for converting Zernike expansion coefficients from one pupil size to another is needed. This investigation derives relationships between the Zernike expansion coefficients for two different pupil sizes.
