Eye Pro:

Cartesian/Polar Converter


This program converts from Polar (e.g. 1.35 D x124 Degrees) to Cartesian notation (e.g. X= -0.50; Y= -1.25) and vice versa.


Cartesian (X;Y) to Polar (Cylinder/Axis) notation Converter:

  1. Easily convert each Refraction from the classical Polar (e.g. +3.25 x 30 Degrees) to Cartesian notation (e.g. X = 1.63; Y = 2.81) in order to perform standard statistics such as Average and SD on a group of eyes. The final result can then be converted back to traditional Polar notation for descriptive purposes.


  1. Polar to Cartesian conversion:

  2. Before calculating Mean and SD, each individual value must be converted from Polar to Cartesian notation.

• Cartesian to Polar conversion:

  1. This is to be used at the end, to convert the calculated Mean and SD back to Polar notation, which is more useful for descriptive purposes.
