Maybe someone has already mentioned them, the famous Innsbruck Goggle Experiments started with
Erismann and Kohler adapting their vision over weeks. For example Erismann wore a pair of prism spectacles 
for three weeks in September/October 1933.

Here a recent paper with the full history (plus references and nice photos):
Sachse, P., et al. . (2017). “The world is upside down” e The Innsbruck Goggle Experiments of Theodor Erismann (1883e1961) and Ivo Kohler (1915e1985). Cortex, 92(222), e232.

Best,  Marco

This paper describes the color matching functions for two observers, J and K. J is the author, James Clerk Maxwell. K is apparently his wife Katherine.

Despite the small n, the biased sample, and the lack of pre-registration and p-values, the results have held up fairly well.

The more impactful the better, whether that be indicated by citation count, recognition of the publication venue, or any other metric, as long as it will be evident to a non-expert.
