The wavefront aberration of any image forming system and, in particular, of a human eye, is often expanded in Zernike modes each mode being weighed by a coefficient that depends both on the image forming components of the system and on the contour, size and centering of the pupil. In the present article, expanding up to 7th order the wavefront aberration, an analytical method to compute a new set of Zernike coefficients corresponding to a pupil in terms of an original set evaluated via ray tracing for a dilated and transversally arbitrarily displaced pupil is developed. A transformation matrix of dimension is attained multiplying the scaling‐horizontal traslation matrix previously derived by appropriate rotation matrices. Multiplying the original coefficients by this transformation matrix, analytical formulas for each new coefficient are attained and supplied and, for the information concerning the wavefront aberration to be available, these formulas must be employed in cases in which the new pupil is contained in the original one. The use of these analytical formulas is exemplified applying them to study the effect of pupil contraction and/or decentering in 3 situations: calculation of corneal aberrations of a keratoconic subject for the natural photopic pupil size and various decenterings; coma compensation by means of pupil shift in a fictitious system solely having primary aberrations and evaluation of the amount of astigmatism and coma of a hypothetical system originally having spherical aberration alone.
