5”. Post-lesion, the monkey showed l-2” of relative esophoria that was relatively noncomitant, compared to the pre-lesion data. There was some preservation of disconjugate phoria adaptation as the phoria shifted in a direction appropriate to the demands of the prism in the leftward eye positions. Post-lesion, however, there were also changes in rightward positions (where there should not have been) and adaptation occurred more slowly. Furthermore, compared to pre-lesion performance. the overall pattern of phoria adaptation post-lesion was not tailored as precisely to the demands of the prism.

For the 4A base-out prisms there was a steep increase in the phoria during the first 10 min of adaptation. then little change thereafter. For the 3A base-in prism, adaptation reached a plateau within the tirst IO min. The amount of phoria adaptation to the same prism varied among monkeys. Thus, Ml had a strong tendency to develop esophoria. In a few cases. the amount of phoria adaptation in response to a base-out prism was larger than expected based upon the power of the prism. Post-lesion. phoria adaptation by Ml and M2 was impaired for the large, 1OA base-out prism even though they were able to overcome the prism-induced disparity and fuse the images of the target during the period they were wearing the prism.

The overall pattern of phoria adaptation post-lesion was not tailored as precisely to the demands of the prism. To see the effects of the disconjugate prism conbination more clearly. independent of any baseline phoria. we plotted the difference between the postand pre-adaptation values for the phoria at each orbital position, pre- and post-lesion (Fig. 6). Pre-lesion, the adaptation was complete within 1 day and thereafter there was little development of phoria. This was also true for most cases post-lesion, but for ~no~kq 3 with the O-2A base-in (exe) prism, there was less phoria on the first day of wearing the prism.
