The magnifying power of ocular systems is limited by the system exit pupil and Lagrange Invariant. This work shows that useful magnification is increased by separating the invariant. The impact on the specification for digital ocular systems, including a binocular example, is provided.
Key words: magnifying power, empty magnification, optical systems, ocular instruments, Lagrange Invariant
