We study the performance of a hybrid technique for high resolution imaging of the eye fundus, in which the main part of the ocular aberration is compensated by an optical device (phase plate, deformable mirror, etc.) and the remaining aberration is compensated by deconvolution from wavefront sensing. A comparison among imaging with partial compensation, deconvolution from wavefront sensing and the presented hybrid technique is made using numerical simulations based on actual aberration data.
