The resting focus of accommodation was measured in the same subjects with both a laser optometer and a high-speed infrared optometer. Although i.r. optometer and laser optometer measures produce similar estimates of the mean resting-focus level in some subjects, others were found to have different levels of resting focus with the two techniques. Control studies demonstrated that these differences were not due to the temporal sampling characteristics of the laser optometer, but resulted instead… CONTINUE READING
