Accommodation was monitored by using a high-speed infrared optometer while subjects viewed a target that appeared to approach and recede in a sinusoidal manner. The target was presented under open-loop conditions to prevent blurring because of accommodation. The experiments suggest that changing target size can be an effective stimulus on its own. This supports the view that accommodation responds to both dioptric and nondioptric stimuli.
