Author Affiliations +
The development and testing of lens array prototypes for human use is described. The major issues addressed during this effort were the optical gain achievable from individual lenslets, visual acuity of the overall device, overall device weight and cost. We describe the techniques used to develop lens array devices using off-the-shelf glass achromats which provided large optical gain and high visual acuity. We then describe the development of plastic achromats which provide equivalent visual performance at a fraction of the cost and weight of the glass prototypes.
