Shack-Hartmann wavefront sensors have found widespread application for testing ocular aberrations. These sensors provide an accurate map of the wavefront emerging from an eye in most cases. However, there is a growing class of patients with diffractive intraocular lenses that will potentially be measured incorrectly with Shack-Hartmann devices. We explore the pitfalls of measuring diffractive lenses with this technology.
