Paper Abstract

Additional insight is obtained about changes in the human eye by noting the changes in the first order characteristics. Delano's y,y-bar diagram furnishes one of the best schemes for depicting these changes. In particular, the cardinal points are easy to locate and visualize. The effects of accommodation and of the correction of myopia with a spectacle lens are calculated and presented in the diagram.
