The refractive index of the components of the eye vary with wavelength with the consequence that the eye cannot simultaneously produce a perfect focus for all wavelengths of light and images projected onto the retina may have “fuzzy,” polychromatic boundaries that may diminish perceptual acuity. Filtering out a large proportion of blue light, it was reasoned, would produce more distinct images by sharpening boundaries and improve visual acuity under conditions of high levels of blue light. Hammond and Elliot discuss these hypotheses fully in Chapter 8.
