Analysis of a lateral shear interferometer based on the data of double–exposure recordings of a lens Fourier hologram of a matted screen is presented. It is shown both theoretically and experimentally that spatial filtering in the plane of the hologram makes it possible to control the quality of a lens or objective. The spatial filtration, if done in the far–diffraction zone, provides for recording the interference pattern characterizing the phase distortions introduced in the reference wave by the aberrations of the optical system forming it.
