Cylinder Magnitude over Time

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

The graph 'avg. cylinder magnitude over time' plots the mean cylinder magnitude at each follow up interval including +- 1 Stdev. It ignores the vectorial (axis) changes and simply shows the presence of astigmatism.

Note: It does not allow to differentiate between under or overcorrection and is incorrect if your data set contains cylinder overcorrection cases.
