This study adapted simulations to analyze the fitting capabilities to human aberration of three kinds of Bimorph Deformable Mirrors (DMs) with different spatial resolutions, especially the capability to fit to 3~ 35th orders of Zernike static aberrations and the human aberrations, including the eye of diseases. It's shown that Bimorph DM is well suitable for fitting to low-order aberrations with the error less than 0.15. As the spatial resolution increased, the capability of fitting aberrations enhanced totally. Compared with traditional discrete piezoelectric DM, 35-element Bimorph DM had smaller fitting error on the first 20th Zernike aberration. This simulated analysis provided an analytical method for the selection of Bimorph DMs for high-resolution human eye imaging systems. In addition, it provided a research foundation of further improvement of the Bimorph DM in fitting aberrations capability.
