Oculomotor Adaptation to Induced Vergence Demands

Abstract

Several researchers have reported on the way the oculomotor system adapts to an induced hetero-phoria or fixation disparity (Carter, 1965; Henson and North, 1980; Ogle et al., 1967; Schor, 1979). Their results show that although an ophthalmic prism placed before one eye initially induces a change in the habitual phoria and fixation disparity, continued fusion through the prism results in an adaptation of the oculomotor system and a loss of the induced change.
