Abstract

This paper aims to compare the image quality between centration on the coaxially sighted corneal light reflex (CSCLR) and on the entrance pupil center (EPC). Myopic laser ablation was simulated on eye models, and the optical performances were compared. Centration on the EPC leads to higher wavefront aberrations and lower modulation transfer function. The two centration methods give nearly identical retinal images for angle kappa less than 5°. Because of less tissue removal, centration on the EPC is probably preferable for angle kappa less than 5°, but CSCLR centration may be preferable for angle kappa larger than 5°. The degree of tilt of the post-surgery anterior corneal surface explains the differences between the two methods.
