Jackson Crossed-Cylinder is a combination of two cylinders of equal strength but of opposite signs placed with their axis at 90 degrees to each other and mounted in a handle.
Jackson Crossed-Cylinder (JCC) technique is also called the flip- cross technique.

- A typical JCC lens is a spherocylindrical lens having a spherical power component combined with a cylinder power component of twice the power of the sphere, and of opposite sign.
- Eg: +0.50 DS combined with -1.00 DC. This results in a net power of +0.50 DC in one axis and -0.50 DC in the other axis(+-50 DC).
- +0.50/-1.00 @90
