Abstract
This communication reviews some classic and recent studies of the optical performance of the human eye across visual field. Although the retinal image can not be recorded directly, different objective methods have been developed, which permit to determine optical quality parameters, such as the Point Spread Function, the Modulation Transfer Function, the geometrical ray aberrations or the wavefront distortions, in the living human eye. Experimental data obtained with these methods, along with a more exact knowledge of the anatomy (asphericities) of the optical surfaces of the eye, permit us to build more accurate models of the optical system of the eye, learn about its wide-angle optical design, and develop applications.
