Foveal point-spread functions are computed from experimental wave-aberration data for individual emmetropic subjects. The effects of pupil size and image focus are considered in the calculations. Foveal images of extended test objects are generated from the point-spread functions corresponding to different image-quality situations. Wiener-filtered test objects are also computed to obtain a partial compensation of the spatial degradation introduced by the eye’s optical system in the visual process.
