Peripheral Refraction and Aberrations for Different Wavelengths: Off-Axis Chromatic Aberration

PURPOSE

The interest in the peripheral optical quality of the eye is increasing, mainly because animal studies have shown that the off-axis refractive errors may influence the progression of myopia. Off-axis image quality is often assessed monochromatically using infrared light. To validate the data obtained with this procedure, it is important to compare off-axis refraction and aberrations for different wavelengths. This may reveal possible systematic measurement errors and potential wavelength dependence of retinal reflections in the periphery.
