Purpose: This study was aimed to design new schematic eyes for presbyopia using the Navarro eye model and clinical data. Methods: We collected clinical data of eye-optical parameters of males in their age of 40, 50, and 60 from previous studies, and designed schematic eyes for presbyopia using the ZEMAX program. Results: The presbyopic process and features of the designed schematic eyes well accorded with the clinical data of previous studies. Conclusions: On the basis of the Navarro eye model, a finite schematic eyes for presbyopia were newly designed corresponding with clinical data.
