The retinal image quality of the infant eye defines the information available to the neural visual system for visual perception, refinement of synaptic connections in visual cortex, and the control of eye growth. Infants are typically hyperopic and therefore accommodation plays a critical role in reducing retinal defocus in a natural environment. One line of research in our lab has been to assess infants' accommodative capabilities in naturalistic conditions. This talk will discuss our studies of the dynamics of infants' accommodation with a view to determining the amounts of defocus the developing visual system is routinely experiencing.
