Abstract

Retinoscopic refraction of an aquatic eye immersed in water is shown to be biased due to refractive effects of the air-water interface between subject and examiner. Ametropias in aquatic eyes are overestimated in retinoscopy by a factor of 1.34 for marine animals and 1.33 for freshwater animals. Future reports of retinoscopically determined refractive state in aquatic eyes should be corrected for this simple physical error.
