Abstract : It has been proposed by Whiteside that in a homogeneous visual environment involuntary accommodation results in a myopic condition which impairs target detection. A means of overcoming this myopia by approximating a condition of infinite depth of focus with the use of an artificial pupil was studied. No improvement of target detection resulted from this procedure. (Author)
