Using theoretical estimates of the optical-transfer function and line-spread function as image-quality criteria, we predicted the influence of the Stiles-Crawford effect (SCE) on both optical performance of the eye and subjective measurements of transverse aberrations when pupils are decentered. The SCE was modeled as a pupil apodization. The SCE appears to improve image quality by providing compensation for aberrations induced by pupil decentration, but this improvement is usually small.
