Measurement of accommodative amplitude in amblyopia.

Abstract

Monocular accommodative amplitudes were measured in amblyopic individuals by the subjective minus lens and push-up techniques and by objective dynamic retinoscopy. Accommodative amplitudes were always reduced in amblyopic eyes using the minus lens and retinoscopy techniques, but not with the push-up technique which inflated this measure. Owing to difficulty in detecting defocused stimuli with the amblyopic eye, it is suggested that the objective retinoscopic technique be used by clinicians for accurate assessment of accommodative amplitude in these patients.
