    Refractive Mgmt/Intervention

    Light rays from each point on an object (upright arrow) form a blur circle on the retina of a myopic eye. The retinal image is the composite of all blur circles, the size of each being proportional to the diameter of the pupil (A) and the amount of defocus. If a pinhole is held in front of the eye, the size of each blur circle is decreased; as a result, the overall retinal image is sharpened (B).
