Abnormal visual experience has been shown to lead to abnormal development of the visual system. Visual experience, as defined by retinal image quality, is highly dependent on accommodative performance in hyperopic infants. This presentation will review recent studies of the accommodative performance of infants and young children, in the context of the interactions between their accommodation and vergence systems, the apparently conflicting accommodative and vergence demands during development, and the development of strabismus and amblyopia.
