- 33. ComaOccurs when oblique rays are refracted by a large-aperture optical system. Affects the sharpness ofimage points.Spherical aberration occurs for beams of lightparallel to the optic axis; coma occurs for obliquebeamsRarely a problem with spectacle lenses the limiting effect ofthe pupil Gauri S Shrestha, M.Optom, FIACLE 33
- 34. ComaFactors that control coma aperture size lens form angle of obliquityComposite image is not circular, butelongated like coma or comet Gauri S Shrestha, M.Optom, FIACLE 34
