Paper Abstract

The refractive index distribution within the crystalline lens is important in determining the image quality of the lens and eye. Postulated advantages of a gradient refractive index (GRIN) which increases from the edge of the lens to the centre include al increase in overall lens power, a decryse in spherical aberration, a decrease in off-axis astigmatism and a decrease in chromatic aberration of the lens and eye.
