Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The orientation preferences of 70 infants aged 7 to 53 weeks with significant astigmatism [1.0 or more diopters (D)] were measured using a preferential looking procedure with paired gratings. The preference data show the consequences of the blurring effects of astigmatism when these are not compensatable by accommodation. Data from infant astigmats tested with optical correction look like those of nonastigmats. We have found no evidence for the development of meridional amblyopia during the first year of life.
