Abstract

Experiments are reported showing that a variety of clues such as chromatic aberration, spherical aberration, or astigmatism may be used to decide whether a monocularly viewed out-of-focus target requires an increase or decrease of accommodation for it to be refocused. When these clues are removed the initial direction of accommodation readjustment may be in error.
