Ocular aberrations, which increase with pupil size, cause imperfect retinal images and reduce retinal vulnerability to injury by lasers. The figures, calculated using measured aberration data, show representative images for small (S) and large (L) aberrations and different pupil diameters. See article by Philip Keith Milsom et al. on page 21 for more information.
