[42] used a questionnaire and optometric indicators comprising fusion range as well as accommodation convergence/accommodation (AC/A) ratio to investigate relationship between visual fatigue and viewers' phoria for viewing autostereoscopic 3D displays.
The OPTOS app on the iPad measures: eye suppression, visual acuity, stereopsis, and phoria (horizontal and vertical).
Researchers have suggested that various oculomotor factors may be related to the development, progression, and stabilization of myopia including poor accommodative response [2-8], decreased accommodative tonus [9], decreased accommodative amplitude [10], reduced accommodative facility [11-13], increased accommodative adaptation [14], increased accommodative variability [15], near phoria [16], and AC/A ratio [8,17,18].
Ocular statuses, including accommodative response, accommodative microfluctuation, accommodative facility, positive and negative relative accommodation, gradient accommodative convergence/accommodation (AC/A), distant and near phoria, and positive and negative fusional vergence, were measured.

Among changes from the previous edition is the renaming of what was formerly termed "gender identity disorder." (The American Medical Association uses the term "gender disorder," classifying it as a "serious medical condition.") The new APA label, "gender dysphoria," removes the pejorative suggestion of "disorder." and thus pleases the transsexual activists who campaigned for years to get the word expunged and believe, presumably, that the new term is "less pathologizing." Incidentally, Dys- has the same etymology as dis- ("bad," "abnormal"), but phoria, from Greek pherein, "bear," suggests malaise.
