    Notes: Abstract For healthy eyes intraocular light scatter was investigated several decades ago. For pathological eyes, however, little is known. As clinical test several techniques have been proposed but none has gained general acceptance. A disadvantage of these tests was that quantities were estimated that related only indirectly to the amount of light scatter. We propose a method that gives a direct estimate of the light scatter. We studied patients with cataract, corneal dystrophy, iris and fundus hypopigmentation, etc. A remarkable finding was that visual acuity correlates rather weakly with the amount of scatter. Since, however, the amount of scatter causes a considerable loss of visual function, the results show that for these patients the visual acuity test gives a rather limited impression of their visual handicap. More attention to the problems associated with intraocular light scatter is needed.

    Notes: Abstract Intraocular straylight can be measured, in clinical as well as normal cases, by the direct compensation technique. Intraocular straylight is known to originate from the cornea, lens and fundus. We have studied a fourth source: the translucency of the iris and surrounding ocular wall. For lightly-pigmented normal eyes this source proved to be important. In the present paper results are reported from a patient with X-linked megalocornea. He had diaphany of the iris, as is common in these patients, and photophobic complaints. Quantitative measurements showed that the translucency was much increased so that the intraocular straylight was far above the normal level.

    Notes: Abstract Non-monofocal IOLs are designed to give simultaneously sharp images of distant and near objects. This is achieved by means of different focal distances for various portions of the light reaching the eye. As a result, for any given object, one part of the light will be properly focused, while another part is out of focus. This results in a sharp image superposed on a blurred image, causing contrast loss. The retinal contrast loss as a function of spatial frequency is derived in this paper.
