Ocular changes associated with accommodation in myopes and emmetropes

Woodman, Emily Claire (2015) Ocular changes associated with accommodation in myopes and emmetropes. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis examines the short-term changes occurring in a number of the eye's structures during reading tasks, and explores how these changes differ between normal eyes, and those with short-sightedness (myopia). This research revealed changes in the shape and thickness of a number of the eye's structures during near work, and aspects of these changes showed differences associated with myopia. These findings have potentially important implications for our understanding of the role of near work in the development and progression of myopia.

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.
