Ocular straylight has been measured by means of psychophysical methods over the years. This approach gives a functional parameter yielding a straight comparison with optically defined light scattering, and the point-spread-function. This is of particular importance when the effect of intraocular lenses (IOLs) on postoperative straylight is sought. An optical system for straylight measurements of IOLs was adapted to a commercial device (C-Quant, Oculus), which employs such psychophysical method. The proposed modifications were validated using light-scattering filters and some sample IOLs. The measurements were performed by 3 observers to prove that results are independent from straylight of the eye. Other applications will be discussed.
