The human eye suffers from longitudinal chromatic aberration, and this has been thought to average approximately 1.75 D between 420 and 660 nm. In many vision experiments the aberration may be a serious problem, and a number of lenses have been designed to correct it, two of which have recently been commercially available. These achromatising lenses produce an equal but opposite aberration to that of the average eye, and the power of the eye/lens combination should then be independent of… CONTINUE READING
