Join the OSA Vision Technical Group for a three part workshop exploring chromatic aberrations in vision. This series will bring to light recent advances in the measurement and correction of chromatic aberrations in the eye for vision and imaging applications. In addition, the talks will explore future directions in the field.
In this first part of the workshop, Prof. Melanie Campbell from the University of Waterloo will deliver her keynote talk ‘Aberrations of the eye: implications to eye growth, vision and imaging.' Both chromatic and monochromatic aberrations have significant relevance in eye growth, vision and high-resolution retinal imaging. In this talk, you will learn about the background of the optics of the eye, a description of monochromatic wavefront aberrations and the factors affecting these aberrations including age and accommodation. The resulting monochromatic image quality and chromatic aberration in the eye has importance in eye growth, vision and imaging.
