TLDR
The effect of prism-induced horizontal TCA on vision, in the central as well as in the 20° nasal visual field, for four subjects means that the prismatic effect of highly dispersive spectacles may reduce the ability to detect objects in the peripheral visual field.
Interferometric measurement of visual acuity and the effect of ocular chromatic aberration.
TLDR
Using an interferometer with just two wavelengths of light, this work demonstrated a wavelength-dependent phase shift directly and measured its magnitude as a function of interferometers displacement, and measured visual acuity using white-light fringes.
Transverse chromatic aberration across the visual field of the human eye
TLDR
The absolute magnitude of ocular TCA varied between subjects, but was similar to the resolution acuity at 10° in the nasal visual field, encompassing three to four cones, therefore, TCA can be visually significant.
A new approach to the study of ocular chromatic aberrations
Testing the effect of ocular aberrations in the perceived transverse chromatic aberration.
TLDR
The results indicate that estimations of polychromatic image quality should incorporate patient's specific data of HOAs, LCA, TCA & SCE, when both the individual HOAs and SCE were considered.

TLDR
The results indicate that lateral chromatic aberration is a major factor affecting image quality for obliquely incident rays of polychromatic light, and probably has negligible effect on peripheral acuity but may act to limit aliasing of peripheral patterns.

TLDR
The results are consistent with previous reports of a sizable region of reasonably good optical quality extending into the retinal midperiphery, and lateral chromatic aberration approximates the average spacing between adjacent retinal cones, indicating that it does not substantially limit peripheral color vision.
Does the chromatic aberration of the eye vary with age?
TLDR
It is concluded that, for human adults, the magnitude of chromatic aberration is independent of age.
Visual Acuity Measured with Clinical Maxwellian-View Systems: Effects of Beam Entry Location
TLDR
Analysis of the beam in the pupil plane indicates that the beam's complex structure may be altered if the beam strikes the iris or an opacity in the ocular media, indicating that potential acuity may be significantly underestimated with polychromatic Maxwellian-view systems.
