Abstract

In the July 1935 issue of the Archives of Ophthalmology1 appeared an article by me entitled "Measurement of Speed of Adjustment of Eye to Near and Far Vision," which dealt with a few tests which I had obtained on the multiple exposure tachistoscope, an apparatus developed by Ferree and Rand, of the Wilmer Ophthalmological Institute of Johns Hopkins Hospital. The article was only a preliminary study and was written to stimulate thought and criticism along that line which would be of value to future work. I realized at the time of writing the article that the tests made were far too few to allow for the drawing of conclusions of any great moment, but I felt entitled to make the statement that more work should be done in order to make a positive or negative report as to the value of such measurements of speed of adjustment
