anisometropic amblyopia

 

Definition: a suppression of central vision resulting from an unequal refractive error (anisometropia) of at least 2 diopters. This induces a sufficient difference in image size (aniseikonia) that the two images cannot be fused. To avoid confusion, the blurrier image is suppressed.

Synonym(s): refractive amblyopia
