Many computer users suffer varying degrees of visual impairment, which hinder their interaction with computers. In contrast with available methods of vision correction (spectacles, contact lenses, LASIK, etc.), this paper proposes a vision correction method for computer users based on image pre-compensation. The blurring caused by visual aberration is counteracted through the pre-compensation performed on images displayed on the computer screen. The pre-compensation model used is based on the visual aberration of the user's eye, which can be measured by a wavefront analyzer. However, the aberration measured is associated with one specific pupil size. If the pupil has a different size during viewing of the pre-compensated images, the pre-compensation model should also be modified to sustain appropriate performance. In order to solve this problem, an adjustment of the wavefront function used for pre-compensation is implemented to match the viewing pupil size. The efficiency of these adjustments is evaluated with an "artificial eye" (high resolution camera). Results indicate that the adjustment used is successful and significantly improves the images perceived and recorded by the artificial eye.
