Longitudinal chromic aberration as a function of refractive error

Wildsoet, Christine F., Atchison, David A., & Collins, Michael J. (1993) Longitudinal chromic aberration as a function of refractive error. Clinical and Experimental Optometry, 76, pp. 119-122.


The refractive error-dependence of longitudinal chromatic aberration was investigated, our hypothesis is being that myopia may be the outcome of inadequate cues to defocus. Myopia, hyperopia and emmetropia were approximately equally represented in the group of 34 young subjects studied. Chromatic aberration was measured using a Badal optometry system incorporating a monochromator. The mean chronic aberration for the group of 1.96 D (400-650 nm) compared favorably with values reported in other studies. Although there was a significant spread in the data which ranged from 1.56 D to 2.30 D across the group, these variations were not refractive error-dependant.

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.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
