Arizona Eye Model

Optical models of the human eye are used for designing ophthalmic devices and optical systems meant to be used with human eyes. This knowledge base article demonstrates one such model: the Arizona Eye Model, which is described in the SPIE “Field Guide to Visual and Ophthalmic Optics” by Jim Schwiegerling. The AZ eye model matches on and off-axis aberration levels that have been determined based on average clinical data. The FRED file contains the eye model as well as several sources useful for analyzing it. An embedded script is included that can be used to adjust the model based on the desired amount of accommodation.
