Early adaptive Syndrome is a syndrome of observations characteristically seen during early stages of visual reorganization to meet (adapt to) adverse visual stress. The observed visual behavior changes are related to another syndrome, the Non-malingering Syndrome. The significant differences are that in the Early Adaptive Syndrome distance acuity may still be within the normal limits and there is not the restriction that the refractive measure be from emmetropia to low hyperopia. The Early Adaptive syndrome is recognizable as early changes when no refractive deviation has been previously seen, and when the individual has apparently refractively stabilized.
