Response of the anterior sclera to accommodation in myopes and emmetropes

Woodman-Pieterse, Emily C., Read, Scott A., Collins, Michael J., & Alonso-Caneiro, David (2016) Response of the anterior sclera to accommodation in myopes and emmetropes. In 15th International Myopia Conference, 23 - 27 September 2015, Wenzhou, China. (Unpublished)


• The biomechanical properties of the sclera are documented to be altered in eyes with myopia, with the myopic sclera thought to be more susceptible to deformation from otherwise normal ocular forces.

• The close anatomical and functional relationship between the ciliary body and sclera suggests that ciliary muscle contraction during accommodation may influence the overlying sclera.

• This study aimed to characterise the changes occurring in anterior scleral thickness with accommodation using anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) in young adult myopes and emmetropes.

Impact and interest:

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.
