I derive simple formulas which accurately give the relative retinal image sizes of corrected eyes. These are useful in calculations involving anisometropia and/or refractive surgery. Using the formulas, I derive simple equations for particular situations and provide two examples. I compare the formulas with the approach adopted by Applegate and Howland (1993) and Applegate and Chundra (1995) to determine relative retinal image sizes before and after refractive surgery.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
