Further, the tendency for ocular accommodation
to lapse to the resting position with virtual displays has been suggested as the basis of apparent minification that has also been associated with virtual displays (e.g., Roscoe, 1986), but apparent minification is probably mediated by accommodative convergence (see Hollins, 1976; Smith, Meehan, & Day, 1992) and other changes in the availability of monocular cues for depth that mediate size constancy (see Meehan, 1993; Meehan & Day, 1995; Meehan, Smith, & Day, 1994).
This will enable me to enhance my experience and to build a strong foundation for future work in the area of ocular accommodation
and presbyopia research, subjects that are at the heart of optometry."
