Paper Abstract

Visual quality depends on many factors of different nature and therefore it is not easy to define. Different measures are used to describe vision quality, such as: two point resolution, visual acuity, contrast sensitivity function (CSF) etc. We concentrate especially on CSF. There are two important factors affecting character of CSF. One of them is connected with the Optical Transfer Function (OTF) of the eye and the second one with the retinal response. Typically CSF is measured in incoherent light. Due to it is dependence on both mentioned above factors simultaneously it is impossible to extract the information on the eye optical system only. We hope that additional information offered by CSF measured in coherent light can help to solve this problem.
