A strategy for optimizing both the on-axis and the off-axis performance of coherently (directly) coupled visual instruments is presented. The strategy draws on the recently published body of data regarding the influence of various individual Seidel aberration and aberration combinations on subjective contrast sensitivity and resolution tasks, as well as studies on the correlation between subjective image quality and objective instrumental figures of merit. An MTF-based metric allows both optimization and tolerancing to be performed in a coherent manner that is based on experimental results of the effects of aberrations.
