The variation of the wavefront aberration with accommodation was investigated based on the eye model of Gullstrand-Le Grand. The anterior lens radius was optimized at different accommodation to focus the image at the retina, and the RMS and PV wave-front error of human eye were compared at different accommodation. The PV value of wavefront aberration from 0.718 waves increases gradually to 0.904 waves and RMS value from 0.21 waves to 0.26 waves when accommodative stimuli varies from 0 to - 5 diopters. The change of PV value is 0.186 waves which is less than the Rayleigh diffraction limit λ/4, and the change of RMS is 0.05 which under Marechal diffraction limit λ/14. Therefore, the change of the wavefront aberration caused accommodation can be ignored when wavefront aberrations in the human eye are corrected with surgery or wearing glasses.
