Generally, the optical quality of the dioptrics of the human eye has been described in terms of the unidimensional modulation transfer function (M.T.F.) usually obtained from measurements of aerial images of lines test formed by the double pass through the optical medial). But due to the assimetries of the wave aberration of the eye, bidimensional information should be obtained for a complete evaluation. So, recently a hybrid optical-digital method for the determination of the bidimensional point spread function (P.S.F. and optical transfer function (O.T.F.) of the human eye has been presented293/. These functions although being of great utility for evaluation purposes do not carry all the optical information about the system as does the wave aberration. This is specially important in the case of the human eye, which always shows assymetries and irregular aberrations even in emmetropized eyes.
