Adaptive optics (AO) visual simulators are excellent platforms for non-invasive simulation visual performance with new intraocular lens (IOL) designs, in combination with a subject own ocular aberrations and brain. We measured the through focus visual acuity in subjects through a new refractive IOL physically inserted in a cuvette and projected onto the eye’s pupil, while aberrations were manipulated (corrected, or positive/negative spherical aberration added) using a deformable mirror (DM) in a custom-developed AO simulator. The IOL increased depth-of-focus (DOF) to 1.53 ± 0.21D, while maintaining high Visual Acuity (VA, -0.07 ± 0.05), averaged across subjects and conditions. Modifying the aberrations did not alter IOL performance on average.
