The Stiles—Crawford effect subdivided into the Stiles—Crawford effect of the first and second kind is a property of the human eye that refers to the directional sensitivity of the cone photoreceptors. The Stiles—Crawford effect of the first kind is the phenomenon where light entering the eye near the edge of the pupil produces a lower photoreceptor response compared to light of equal intensity entering near the center of the pupil. The photoreceptor response is significantly lower than expected by the reduction in the photoreceptor acceptance angle of light entering near the edge of the pupil. The Stiles—Crawford effect of the second kind is the phenomenon where the observed color of monochromatic light entering the eye near the edge of the pupil is different compared to that for the same wavelength light entering near the center of the pupil, regardless of the overall intensities of the two lights.

The peripheral test point intercepted the retina between the optic nerve head and the ora serrata. At both test points, photopic and scotopic one subject Stiles-Crawford function peaks were contained within the pupillary bound and approximated the center of the pupil. Directionality at the two points was rather similar. These findings add strength to the argument that retinal receptors align approximately with the center of the exit pupil of the eye.
Evidence for stability in Stiles-Crawford peak location in time is also presented. Raymond A. Applegate and Vasudevan Lakshminarayanan J. A 10 7 David G. Birch, Eileen E. Birch, and Jay M. Enoch J.

Whether the SCE-I plays a role in myopic development remains unclear although a reduction in directionality has been predicted for high myopia. The purpose of this study is to analyse the relationship between foveal SCE-I directionality, axial eye length, and defocus for emmetropic subjects wearing ophthalmic trial lenses during psychophysical measurements and for myopic subjects with their natural correction. The brightness of the test is adjusted by the duty cycle of the projected light to an upper limit of 22 Hz. The wavelength and bandwidth are set by a tuneable liquid-crystal filter centred at nm.
