We wished to determine how pupil size and mean accommodation response level interact to influence the fluctuations of accommodation. A dynamic infra-red optometer was used to record accommodation responses while subjects viewed a steady target at two stimulus levels (1.5 and 3 D) through four pupils (1, 2, 4 and 6 mm). It was found for most subjects that the fluctuations of accommodation increase at higher mean accommodation response levels, and small pupils lead to an increase in the low frequency (but not the high frequency) fluctuations of accommodation. The effects of mean accommodation response are independent of pupil size, and the effects of pupil size are independent of mean response level.
