Open (1) Aberration Compensated Displays for Personalized Vision Correction

Open. Apprentices needed for the fall semester. Please do NOT contact faculty before September 11th (the start of the 4th week of classes)! Enter your application on the web beginning August 16th. The deadline to apply is Tuesday, August 29th at 8 AM.

This project is investigating algorithmic vision correction for the user of a display based on his or her spectacles prescription in simple cases or based on measurements of the optical aberrations of his or her vision in more complex cases. Our approach is to compute an altered display that when viewed by the particular individual user would appear in sharp focus for this particular individual. Since some visual impairments involve irregular astigmatism and high order optical aberrations which are impossible to correct with spectacle lenses, the proposed research could provide the opportunity to use display devices for the first time to those for whom this has been heretofore impossible due to their suffering from these ocular conditions.
