anisometropic amblyopia

an·i·so·me·tro·pic am·bly·o·pi·a

a suppression of central vision resulting from an unequal refractive error (anisometropia) of at least 2 diopters. This induces a sufficient difference in image size (aniseikonia) that the two images cannot be fused. To avoid confusion, the blurrier image is suppressed.
