This document specifies minimum requirements for instruments and systems that fall into the class of corneal topographers (CTs). It also specifies tests and procedures to verify that a system or instrument complies with this document and thus qualifies as a CT according to this document. It also specifies tests and procedures that allow the verification of capabilities of systems that are beyond the minimum requirements for CTs. This document defines terms that are specific to the characterization of the corneal shape so that they may be standardized throughout the field of vision care. This document is applicable to instruments, systems and methods that are intended to measure the surface shape of the cornea of the human eye. NOTEÂ Â Â Â Â The measurements can be of the curvature of the surface in local areas, three-dimensional topographical measurements of the surface or other more global parameters used to characterize the surface. This document is not applicable to ophthalmic instruments classified as ophthalmometers.

This document describes visible solar radiation with wavelengths close to the UV range, its transmission to, within and the effects on the human eye. The wavelengths concerned are from 380 nm to 500 nm, covering the colours of violet, indigo and blue — often referred to as the "blue wavelengths". It also explains the filtering effects and measurement of spectacle lenses and sunglasses, thereby providing background information to understand the transmittance requirements related to filtering effects of lenses and filters in the available spectacle lens and sunglass standards. This document does not address the issues of protection from artificial sources of radiation. This document is intended to be of benefit to any future interest in ISO standardization related to transmission of solar radiation with wavelengths near to and greater than 380 nm. The Bibliography provides a source of relevant useful references.

This document specifies requirements for any intraocular lenses to be implanted in the anterior
segment of the eye with the primary indication to modify its refractive power.
There are three main categories of phakic intraocular lenses depending on the optical design:
a) Phakic monofocal (PIOL);
b) Phakic multifocal (PMIOL); and
c) Phakic toric (PTIOL).
Each of these categories is further designated for implantation in either the anterior or posterior
chamber of the anterior segment of the eye.
The basic phakic IOL requirements apply to all the types. Additional requirements apply to PMIOL and
PTIOL designs.
This document addresses specific clinical requirements for phakic IOLs that are not addressed in the
other parts of ISO 11979.
