The monochromatic aberrations present in the eyes of a group of 21 young myopic subjects and 16 young emmetropic subjects were measured along the visual axis at three levels of accommodation. The aberrations were measured using a modified aberroscope technique which makes use of a retinal camera to photograph the shadow image of the aberroscope grid on the retina, while accommodation levels of 0, 1.5 and 3.0 D were induced consensually. Fourth-order aberrations were significantly different between the emmetropic and myopic groups, with the myopes showing lower fourth-order terms. A high proportion of the aberroscope grids photographed in the myopic eyes were too highly aberrated to permit analysis.

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.
