Interocular blur suppression and monovision

Collins, Michael J. & Goode, Andrew (1995) Interocular blur suppression and monovision. Acta Ophthalmologica, 72(3), pp. 376-380.



The ability of the binocular system to suppress blur from the defocused eye is an important mechanism underlying the success of monovision correction. With a group of 60 new monovision wearers, we found that blur suppression ability varied substantially between subjects and that crossed dominance influenced blur suppression ability. Symptoms of ghosting amongst the monovision wearers appeared to be influenced by the strength of rivalry dominance. An understanding of the suppression processes underlying monovision may assist in patient selection and management.

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.
