Abstract
The design principles of a viewing lens for virtual reality are discussed, and a design example given. Used with a 2.2" colour LCD, the system gives a 120° field of view for each eye. Monochromatic and chromatic aberrations are corrected for all the points in the field, while the large barrel distortion of the lens is compensated by a reverse compression of the image on the LCD. The system can establish a good stereoscopic view with a strong sense of immersion.
