A form of anisometropia in which one eye is myopic and the other hypermetropic.

All POAG patients satisfied the following inclusion criteria: (1) A best-corrected visual acuity ≥20/30; (2) spherical refraction within −6.00 to 0 D and a cylinder correction within [+ or -]3.0 D, antimetropia ≤2 D; (3) open angles on gonioscopy and typical glaucomatous optic disc appearances such as rim thinning, notching, excavation, hemorrhage, or retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) defects; and (4) glaucomatous visual field (VF) loss on at least two separate occasions with mean deviations ≥−6 dB, with clusters of three or more adjacent points depressed more than 5 dB, or two or more adjacent points depressed more than 10 dB.
Non-tolerances arising from PPL dispenses are often linked to measurement accuracy when dispensing or glazing, lens design selection, adaptation, and prescription problems associated with high spheres, cylinders and additions, as well as anisometropia and antimetropia.
