O c u l o m o t o r Cues These have an historically primary role in the theory of distance perception and operate only at close distances. As objects move closer to the observer two major oculomotor responses occur. Accommodation, a contraction of 26 Barbara Gillam the ciliary muscles, causes the lens of the eye to become more convex. This has the effect of fine tuning the focus of the image on the retina (much of which is already achieved by the cornea). Defocus blur has traditionally been regarded as the proximal stimulus for accommodation, although changes in size (looming) have recently been found to stimulate it (Kruger & Pola, 1985).
