Night Myopia Explored With An Adaptive Optics Visual Simulator

PURPOSE

Eyes that are emmetropic in daylight are thought to become myopic at low luminance conditions. This phenomenon, commonly referred to as night myopia was extensively studied during the mid XX century. However, as it is pointed out in a classical study (Koomen et al., JOSA, 1951): “night myopia has been rediscovered from time to time and the literature is full of conflicting results”. The purpose of this work is to revisit this phenomenon using an adaptive optics instrument operating in invisible infrared illumination to elucidate its actual magnitude and main causes.
