Experimental in vitro studies of speckle-modulated laser field arising after transmission through different type of human cataractous lenses are presented. Computer analysis of digital imaging has allowed to determinate the degree of destruction of spatial coherence scattered laser beam and the angle of resolution of the retina using Retinal Analyzer of Vision (AROL-1) in diagnosis of cataract. Measurement of retinal visual acuity (RVA) in 135 patient with different types of cataract (senile, complicated, posterior capsular) before and after cataract extraction and also in vitro measurement of RVA with extracted cataractal lenses has shown that laser retinometer can be used for evaluating visual acuity within 0.3 - 1, practically for all types of cataracts.
