With contributions from experts in the field, Adaptive Optics for Vision Science: Principles, Practices, Design, and Applications is devoted to the fundamentals of the technology. Part of the “Wiley Series in Microwave and Optical Engineering,” the 616-page book is based on collaborations fostered by the Center for Adaptive Optics, a consortium of universities, corporations and government laboratories. Written mainly for researchers in vision science and ophthalmology, it features sections on design examples, wavefront measurement and correction, and retinal-imaging and vision-correction applications. It explores how wavefront sensors may lead to correction methods for higher-order vision aberrations. Charts, diagrams and references are provided.
