Paper Abstract

The analytical flux monitoring technique has been used to evaluate the caustic surface and line spread function (energy flux distribution along a line) on different image planes for point source light passing through a model of the human eye. It is shown by comparison with the standard spot diagrams that the caustic is a valuable tool in evaluating the aberra-tions and performance of the model of the human eye.
