This paper discusses a technique for designing wide-angle orthoscopic anastigmatic microscope eyepieces with a second-order aspheric surface. The necessary mathematical apparatus is given for calculations based on third-order theory of aberrations. The fundamental optical layout of the eyepieces is given for illustration, along with tables of the residual aberrations of the systems that have been designed.
