1. A method for selecting an intraocular lens for a patient, the method comprising the steps of:
determining a tear film lipid layer thickness for the patient using a wave-length dependent optical interferometer;
determining a reflectivity value for the tear film lipid layer thickness at a first wavelength of light corresponding to ultraviolet, violet, or blue light; and
identifying an intraocular lens for attenuating or blocking at least one wavelength of light corresponding to the ultraviolet, violet, or blue light.
