Abstract

The Stiles-Crawford effect is treated as an apodization in the plane of the entrance pupil of the eye by computing the pupil function from measured values of the line spread function. The resulting apodized spread function is shown to be different from the measured spread function. The differences are in the order of 10% to 20%, but may be quite significant in the light of certain neurological phenomena.
