In this study,which also provides an assessment of machine performance, IOL optimization of aspheric surfaces, using the conic constant factor, has been selected. Such surfaces are easily machined by most software-driven lathes, such as DAC 2- and 4-axis lathes, which were utilized for this study. Measuring tilt and decentration performances on the optimized aspheric lenses, it is shown that 'best shape' IOLs scan be produced using a broad range of lens designs. This promises to increase manufacturer and surgeon confidence in maximizing patients' visual acuity with better contrast sensitivity using aspheric designs.
