Manipulation of the eye's aberrations using adaptive optics (AO) has shown that optical imperfections can affect the dynamic accommodation response. A limitation of current system designs used for such studies is an inability to make direct measurements of the eye's aberrations during the experiment. We present an AO system which has a dual wavefront sensing channel. The corrective device is a 37-actuator piezoelectric deformable mirror. The measurements used to control the mirror, and direct measurements of the eye's aberrations, are captured on a single Shack-Hartmann sensor. Other features of the system include stroke amplification of the deformable mirror and a rotating diffuser to reduce speckle.We demonstrate the utility of the system by investigating the impact of aberration dynamics on the control of steady-state accommodation on four subjects.
