Deflectometry is an optical technique for determining properties such as power distribution, wavefront, etc., and measurement of the optical properties of an intraocular lens can provide relevant information for clinicians. The aim of the current study was to establish a protocol for measuring lens power maps and profiles of various optical designs of intraocular lenses with a deflectometer based on the phase-shifting Schlieren principle (NIMO TR1504, Lambda-X, Nivelles, Belgium). The results are discussed with respect to accuracy and repeatability, the influence of the use of filters, and whether to consider the intraocular lens as a thin or thick lens.
