Nodal points are defined using parallel object and image rays at very small angles to the optical axis, and Johann Listing described them when characterizing the eye in 1845. They are only distinct from principal points when there is a refractive index difference, but Reginald Clay used the term "nodal slide" in 1904 for equipment that uses lens rotation when measuring a lens focal length in air. Over time, sketches of nodal rays at large angles have become common, and these perhaps appear to…

Study the Field of View Influence on the Monchromatic and Polychromatic Image Quality of a Human Eye

In this paper, the effect of the eye field of view (known as F.O.V.) on the performance and quality of the image of the human eye is studied, analyzed, and presented in detail. The image quality of

Visual Axis and Stiles–Crawford Effect Peak Show a Positional Correlation in Normal Eyes: A Cohort Study

The visual axis and SCE peak locations varied among the participants; however, they were highly correlated with each other for each individual, suggesting a potential mechanism underlying the foveal cone photoreceptor alignment.
