refractive amblyopia -->
anisometropic amblyopia
medical dictionary

A suppression of central vision due to an unequal refractive error (anisometropia) of at least two diopters. This induces a sufficient difference in image size (aniseikonia) that the two images cannot be fused. In order to avoid confusion, the blurrier image is suppressed.

Synonyms: refractive amblyopia.
