Abstract

Anomalous visual experience during development has been shown to induce myopia in several species of animals. A retrospective analysis of refractive error among humans subjected to various ocular anomalies that disrupt pattern vision revealed a significant degree of myopia. This result suggests that emmetropization is a vision-dependent phenomenon.
