In this work, the crystalline lens in the Gullstrand–Le Grand human eye model is replaced by a double-liquid variable-focus lens, the structure data of which are based on theoretical analysis and experimental results. When the pseudoaphakic eye is built in Zemax, aspherical surfaces are introduced to the double-liquid variable-focus lens to reduce the axial spherical aberration existent in the system. After optimization, the zoom range of the pseudoaphakic eye greatly exceeds that of normal human eyes, and the spot size on an image plane basically reaches the normal human eye’s limit of resolution.
