Paper Abstract

In this paper we studied the chromatic properties of the bovine eye. Dispersion of the ocular liquids was measured in the Pulfrich refractometer. The measurements was done for five different wavelengths. From this data the dispersion curves and Abbe number of the eye substances was derived. To measure the distribution of the refractive index within the crystalline lens we modified the Pulfrich refractometer. Gradient of the refractive index of the crystalline lens was measured for three wavelengths. Distribution of the refractive index within the crystalline lens was be approximated by the parabolic function. Additionally, we measured the spherical aberration of the bovine crystalline lens for four different wavelengths. The experiment showed, that crystalline lens is corrected for the spherical aberration.
