Refractive amblyopia

From Biology-Online Dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

refractive amblyopia --> anisometropic amblyopia

A suppression of central vision due to an unequal refractive error (anisometropia) of at least two diopters. This induces a sufficient difference in image size (aniseikonia) that the two images cannot be fused. In order to avoid confusion, the blurrier image is suppressed.

Synonym: refractive amblyopia.
