A new schematic eye with aspheric surfaces and a radially varying refractive-index distribution lens is proposed. Image quality and spherical aberration are determined by use of ray tracing, and the results are presented as spot diagrams and compared with five existing model eyes. The proposed model provides the best image quality and lowest spherical aberration. (C) 2004 Optical Society of America.
