In the first part of the paper we demonstrate that the oculomotor system adapts to prism-induced heterophoria over limited motor fields. In the second part we demonstrate that it can also adapt to an induced anisometropia. When normal subjects are made 3 diopters anisometropic, they initially exhibit a phoria whose magnitude is dependent on eye position. After 21/2 hr of binocular visual experience, this incomitant phoria has largely disappeared.
