Abstract

Spherical aberration affects vision in varying degrees depending on pupil size, accommodation, individual eye characteristics, and interpretations by the brain. We developed a spherical aberration gauge to help evaluate the correction potential of spherical aberration in human vision. Variable aberration levels are achieved with laterally shifted polynomial plates from which a user selects a setting that provides the best vision. The aberration is mapped into the pupil of the eye using a simple telescope. Calibration data are given.
