The benefit of correction of aberrations in the human eye with adaptive optics is strongly reduced by eye movements. Although devices for compensation of eye movements have already been developed, these are very advanced and expensive. We are working on the development of a novel method for eye movement compensation based on the detection of a corneal reflex by a linear profile sensor. Electronic circuits for controlling the profile sensor and stepper motors have already been designed. Next, a

Another shortcoming is that the profile sensor operates in only one dimension. However, these problems can be solved by using a two-dimensional profile sensor and piezo-mounts working at much higher frequencies.
