The Flitcroft (1998) emmetropization model incorporates a classical model of accommodation and convergence with blur-driven feedback control of eye growth. We have modified this model by incorporating the effects of illumination (with or without extensive near work) on accommodation, vergence, pupil diameter and emmetropization. In addition to replicating Flitcroft's results, we show that (1) decreased illumination and (2) a low convergence accommodation/convergence (CAC) ratio exacerbate the… CONTINUE READING
