ABSTRACT

We provide a simple model for calculating the chromatic difference of magnification for the human eye. Spectral differences in image size are proportional to the eye's longitudinal chromatic aberration and the axial distance between the entrance pupil and nodal point. We verify that the model provides magnification estimates equal to previously published predictions, and we show the significant increase in this aberration produced by experimental use of artificial pupils.
