In order to reduce the error and improve the measurement accuracy, a more detailed error model is established for the Hartmann method of focal power measurement in this paper. It focuses on the analysis of several problems that cause the error of refraction problems, including the dispersion error of the light source, the inaccurate of the photodetector’s central positing, the tilt of lens, misalignment between incidence axis and main axis of lens, and the incident light and the lens are not perpendicular. At last, it is concluded that the inaccuracy of the center extraction on the photodetector will cause a large error to the final result. For all these reasons, a method of dual bilinear interpolation combined with a fitting method to find the centroid is proposed, proving its effectiveness and accuracy.
