Paper Abstract

The correction of the human eye's higher-order wave aberrations by a phase plate has been studied. The phase plate was made by using a single-mask-moving technique. The imaging quality has been analyzed in terms of several metrics. The results show that the fabrication error is 0.05 μm, which is close to λ/14 at the medium value of the wavelength of white light, and the performance of the eye can be improved by the phase plate, indicating that the single-mask-moving technique has potential applications in clinically correcting ocular aberrations.
