Subjects adaption to blur magnitude and orientation of their aberrations published in Journal of Vision
We studied to which extent subjects are adapted to the magnitude of the aberrations or the orientation of their own aberrations, by looking at their best perceived focus for pure defocus, and (keeping blur magnitude constant) their preferred oriented pattern. We found that subjects are primarily adapted to the overall amount of blur, and to a lesser extent to blur orientation. The study is a collaborative effort between VioBio_Lab and Michael Webster’s lab at the University of Nevada.
