This study examined the contrast and spatial-frequency requirements for emmetropization in chicks. Chicks were form deprived from hatching either constantly or had this treatment interrupted with 20 min of "visual stimulation" each day. Visual stimulation comprised exposure to either a normal cage environment (i.e., normal vision) or environments that were restricted in either their spatial contrast or spatial-frequency composition. Constant form deprivation resulted in high myopia (e.g. -11.8… CONTINUE READING
