Inhibition of binocular contrast sensitivity in hypermetropic anisometropia

Antonio A.V. Cruz, Joseph Bauer, Richard Held

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Binocular contrast inhibition can occur when the monocular contrast sensitivities are not equal. It has been reported in cases of monocular cataracts. Our case is an 18-year-old female with 3.50 D of hypermetropic anisometropia. She was not amblyopic but showed a typical binocular contrast inhibition.
