Rotating my head left and right, and fixating a line on my laptop's monitor by looking through the glass close to the outer and inner edge of my glasses, I just realised that they have chromatic aberration But only on the edges of black objects

Blue on the outer and top edges, yellow on the inner and lower edge.

Hungry? For $9.99 you can eat all you want at the China Dragon! Unfortunately, there wasn't a slice of Velveeta in the place....


But they did have genuine Chines Hot Mustard...which is almost as good as having Velveeta.

But do they have corner-to-corner sharpness? What is the bokeh like? And most importantly, do they cover the FF circle???

In contrast to my eyes, which only have about 1° of sharpness in the fovea, my glasses have great corner sharpness. I have never tried stopping them down though to see whether it gets even better. Consequently I cannot tell you anything about the bokeh either. I'm pleased with my eyes' bokeh though. When I hold my finger close to my eyes and fixate it, the out-of-focus blurriness around it is very pleasing. It's just difficult to look at it for closer inspection, because then it disappears

As to the FF circle, I don't know. 35 mm film has a size of 864 square millimetres, while the average retina measures about 1,100 square millimetres. However, when wearing my glasses I can perceive the edges of them in my visual field, so they do not completely cover my retina. So do they cover 35 mm film? I do not know.

Isn't that why we squint when we look at things in the distance? To stop down & increase sharpness?

I still have my X-Ray vision glasses I ordered from the back of a comic book when I was about 12. You can see right through a girls dress, but all you can see are her bones. Is this chromatic aberration ...and can it be corrected?
