Factors influencing interocular blur suppression

Collins, Michael J. & Goode, Andrew (1994) Factors influencing interocular blur suppression. Clinical and Experimental Optometry, 77, pp. 206-209.


An important feature of monovision correction is the ability of the binocular system to suppress blur from the defocused eye (interocular blur suppression). We conducted a study with three subjects and found that interocular blur suppression improved with higher levels of monocular defocus (addition powers in monovision) but was not

affected by the eye defocused (sighting dominant or non-dominant) or by pupil size. The selection and management of monovision patients may be assisted by an understanding of the underlying suppression processes.

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.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
