En passant, my paper--Some measurements made with the Fincham haploscope co-incidence optometer (Optician April 18, 1969)--included results for convergence-induced accommodation (accommodation induced by convergence alone), which was exceptional for subject G, a -4.50 myopic student.
For overall light level measurements in the broad stimulation experiments, a United Detector Technology optometer gave a direct readout in milliwatts per square centimeter.
A self-test optometer. This is a simple folding cardboard device used test the range and power of vision.
(39) Irradiance levels presented in this study were obtained with a Daavlin X96 irradiance meter, P9710 optometer (accuracy, [+ or -] 5%).
Measurements of irradiance were made using a GigaHertz-Optik model P9710 optometer and a model UV-3718-2 flat UV sensor (Puchheim, Germany).
Using the newly developed laser optometer (Hennessy & Leibowitz, 1970, 1972), Leibowitz and his colleagues found new evidence for the intermediate resting-state theory and discovered wide individual differences in resting-state measures (Leibowitz & Owens, 1975b, 1978).
Irradiance at the level of the specimens in the cuvette was measured using an optometer and calibrated radiometric probe (models S471 and 260, UDT Instruments).
