Degrading the retinal image by frosted eye occluders produces elongated eyes and 'deprivation myopia' in a variety of animal models. The postulated retinal 'deprivation detector' is quite sensitive to even small changes in image contrast or spatial frequency composition. Because psychophysical experiments have shown that a decline in luminance shifts the contrast sensitivity function to lower spatial frequencies, it is likely that only a reduced spatial frequency range is available for image… CONTINUE READING
