New publication in OSA’s Biomedical Optics Express

The purpose of this work was to evaluate peripheral image quality in the pseudophakic eye using computational, physical and psychophysical methods. We designed and constructed a physical model of the pseudophakic human eye with realistic dimensions using a corneal phantom and a board-only camera that was pivoted around an axis that matched the anatomical centre […]
