Age-related changes in the crystalline lens shape and refractive index gradient produce changes in dioptric power and high-order aberrations that influence the optics of the whole eye and contribute to a decrease in overall visual quality. Despite their key role, the changes in lens shape and refractive index gradient with age and accommodation and their effects on high-order aberrations are still not well understood. The goal of this project was to develop a combined laser ray tracing (LRT) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) system to measure high-order aberrations, shape and refractive index gradient in non-human primate and human lenses. A miniature motorized lens stretching system was built to enable imaging and aberrometry of the lens during simulated accommodation. A positioning system was also built to enable on- and off-axis OCT imaging and aberrometry for characterization of the peripheral defocus of the lens. We demonstrated the capability of the LRT-OCT system to produce OCT images and aberration measurements of crystalline lens with age and accommodation in vitro. In future work, the information acquired with the LRT-OCT system will be used to develop an accurate age-dependent lens model to predict the role of the lens in the development of refractive error and aberrations of the whole eye.
