It is demonstrated that objectively we are capable to accommodate more in brighter surroundings

The Optometry and Vision Science (OVS) journal has released a special issue on “Wavefront Refraction and Correction”, where two articles of the members of the CIVIUM were published. In one of them: “Changes in the Objective Amplitude of Accommodation with Pupil Size” the authors (Lara, Francisco; Bernal-Molina, Paula; Fernández-Sánchez, Vicente; López-Gil, Norberto) demonstrate how subjects accommodate more (their amplitude of accommodation is larger) when they are presented with stimuli in an environment with more illumination, which causes the pupil to become smaller.
