Adaptation to Interocular differences of blur, published in Journal of Vision

paper_junioMonocular adaptation and binocular contingent adaptation (i.e. one eye adapted to a sharp image and the contralateral eye to a blurred image, or astigmatic blur with perpendicular orientations in each eye) were studied. We found that adaptation can selectively adjust to some but not all refractive differences between the eyes (predominantly spherical blur), and that the adaptation tend to be dominated by the sharper retinal image. The study is a collaborative work between Prof. Webster’s lab (Department of Psychology) at the University of Nevada at Reno and the Visual Optics and Biophotonics Lab.
