Third-order equations are developed giving sagittal and tangential power errors corresponding to the eye rotating to look through the periphery of a spectacle lens. The equations are applicable for conicoid aspherical surfaces. From these, other equations are derived for elimination of oblique astigmatism and mean oblique error. Graphical examples show how… (More)
