Abstract

The prevalence and nature of astigmatism in infant monkeys were examined. Unlike human infants, monkey infants exhibited relatively little astigmatism. The low prevalence of infantile astigmatism suggests that astigmatic errors do not provide essential cues for emmetropization in monkeys.
