Effect of Weak Hyperopia on Stereoscopic Vision
Convergence, accommodation and pupil diameter were measured simultaneously while subjects were watching 3D images. The subjects were middle-aged and had weak hyperopia. WAM-5500 and EMR-9 were combined to make an original apparatus for the measurements. It was confirmed that accommodation and pupil diameter changed synchronously with convergence. These findings suggest that with naked vision the pupil is constricted and the depth of field deepened, acting like a compensation system for weak accommodation power. This suggests that people in middle age can view 3D images more easily if positive (convex lens) correction is made.
