Adaptive optics provides a means to measure and correct aberrations in human vision. This technology is being used to diagnose vision problems, study the mechanism of human vision, and extend the capabilities of nature's optics. The ideal wavefront corrector for vision science adaptive optics would have greater stroke, and more degrees of freedom than is currently available. Micromachined deformable mirrors may soon meet these demands. Membrane mirrors in particular offer a promising alternative to other MEMS deformable mirror designs. A new type of mirror, employing a bound charge layer on the membrane, may overcome some of the limitations of previous membrane mirrors.
