The child’s great grandfather, Conrad F. Sturm, has a range of accommodation of 20 cm (distance) to 15 cm (near) without spectacles. What is his distance refractive correction? When accommodation is relaxed, Mr. Sturm is in focus at 20 cm (his far point). 2 m) = 5 D. Ignoring vertex distance, his distance correction is therefore -5 D (Figure 7-5). Figure 7-5. Mr. Sturm’s range of accommodation. F. What is Mr. Sturm’s amplitude of accommodation? 6 D of accommodation. However, Mr. Sturm already has a 5 D “head start” on accommodation when he is not wearing spectacles.
Outside of those limits, the astigmatism becomes oblique. With- and against-the-rule conventions allow plus and minus cylinder aficionados to converse without translating plus to minus cylinder and vice versa. Children tend to have with-the-rule astigmatism. This may be due to the elasticity of the eyelids in children, or the pliability of the cornea. The tight lids press down on the upper and lower cornea and steepen its vertical meridian. Older adults have flabby, stretched-out eyelids and thus they tend to have against-the-rule astigmatism… at least until a cataract surgeon ties the 12 o’clock suture too tight and converts the astigmatism back to with-the-rule!

During residency you learned to retinoscope at a working distance of 67 cm from the patient, but you had an accident recently and can’t extend your arms as far.
