Abstract

Four experiments were conducted to ascertain whether myopia is associated with deficits of visuospatial attention. In myopic and emmetropic control subjects, we studied: (1) automatic and voluntary orienting of attention, (2) focusing of attention and (3) performance on a visual search task. The results indicated that automatic orienting was defective in myopics and their performance in visual search was less efficient than that of controls. By contrast, myopics showed no deficits in voluntary orienting and in focusing.
