The Pupil Response to an Accommodation Stimulus and to a Light Stimulus

  • G. J. van der Wildt
Part of the Symposion der Deutschen Ophthalmologischen Gesellschaft book series (OPH.GES.)


When the eye is fixating a moving object, of which the distance from the eye is varied, three separate magnitudes of the eye are changed, namely the refractive power of the eyelens, the pupilsize, and the eyeposition (accommodative convergence).
