The eye appears adapted to the orientation of the native high order aberration. For the first time, using a classification-images inspired psychophysical paradigm, the orientation of the best perceived blur by subjects has been reveals, matching the orientation of the optical blur. The study, a collaboration between the Visual Optics and Biophotonics Lab and Peli’s lab at the Schepens Eye Research Institute-MEEI (Harvard University) has just been published in PLOS One.
