Previous investigations have reported considerable individual differences in the resting point of accomodation. Recent independent studies in Davis, Calif., and Cardiff, Wales, indicate that part of these variations are related to refractive errors. The average dioptric value of the resting point of accomodation is lowest for corrected myopes, highest for corrected hyperopes, and intermediate for emmetropes. Another part of the variation in resting point is related to individual differences in the far point of accomodation. There appears to be no significant relationship between the resting point and near point of accomodation.
