Wide-field compensation of monochromatic eye aberrations: expected performance and design trade-offs

Abstract

The optical quality of the human eye varies across the visual field. Hence an exact compensation of the eye aberration for a given field point can give rise to a less-than-optimum compensation in neighboring field regions. We have studied some aspects of this problem and present here an approach to design wide-field (<10°) optically thin correcting elements, e.g., phase plates, deformable mirrors, and liquid-crystal displays. Their expected performance is assessed using actual eye aberration data. Particular attention is given to the design of elements providing a minimum averaged rms residual aberration and those providing a nearly uniform rms residual aberration across a given field.
