Understanding the limits of human vision requires fundamental insights into both optical and neural factors in vision. Although the eye's optics are far from perfect, contributions of the optical factors to neural processing are largely underappreciated. Specifically, how neural processing of images formed on the retina is altered by the long-term visual experience with habitual optical blur has remained unexplored. With technological advances in an adaptive optics vision simulator, it is now possible to manipulate ocular optics precisely. I will highlight our recent investigations on underlying mechanisms of long-term neural adaptation to the optics of the eye and its impact on spatial vision in the normally developed adult visual system.
