Depth of focus of the human eye

Atchison, David A. (2012) Depth of focus of the human eye. In Pallikaris, Ioannis, Plainis, Sotiris, & Charman, W. Neil (Eds.) Presbyopia : Origins, effects and treatment. Slack Incorporated.


In general optical systems, the range of distances over which the detector cannot detect any change in focus is called the depth-of-field. This may be specified by movement of the object or image planes, with the former being referred to as depth-of-field and the latter as depth-of-focus (DOF). Either term can be used in vision science, where we refer to changes in vergence which have the same value in both object and image space.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
