Abstract

Optical systems for correcting the axial chromatic aberration of the eye are studied theoretically. Compact(cemented) doublets or triplets for this cannot avoid introducing unwanted transverse color. A new air-spaced system is described which avoids this problem. Experimental results confirmed that this lens performed well over a 14-deg field of view.
