Human Axial Chromatic Aberration Found Not to Decline with Age

Abstract

Millodot (1976) reported a dramatic decline in the amount of axial chromatic aberration of the human eye with age. The present study represents a failure to replicate that finding using a more standard procedure. No difference in chromatic aberration was found between a young and an older group of observers. Also, the chromatic aberrations of two observers which had been measured 25 years previously showed no decline when these measurements were repeated, even though their ages at first and second testing straddled the period over which Millodot reported the most change in chromatic aberration.
