Abstract

This Letter studies the statistics of wavefront aberrations in a sample of eyes with normal vision. Methods relying on the statistics of the measured wavefront slopes are used, not including the aberration estimation stage. Power-law aberration models, an extension of the Kolmogorov one, are rejected by χ 2 -tests performed on fits to the slope structure function data. This is due to the large weight of defocus and astigmatism variations in normal eyes. Models of only second-order changes are not ruled out. The results are compared with previous works in the area.
