Abstract

Antimetropia, a sub-classification of anisometropia, is a rare refractive condition in which one eye is myopic and the fellow eye is hyperopic. This case report describes the ocular characteristics and atypical refractive progression in an adult male with a moderate degree of non-amblyopic antimetropia over a 20-year period. The potential mechanisms underlying unilateral axial elongation, anisometropia and myopia progression in adulthood are discussed.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
