Accommodation effects on peripheral ocular biometry

Aldossari, Hussain Mubarak D (2016) Accommodation effects on peripheral ocular biometry. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


The effect of near work on the biometric properties of the eye, including the eye’s length and the thickness of the posterior vascular layer were investigated. Short-sighted eyes had greater increases in length and greater thinning of the vascular layer when focused on close objects than did normally-sighted eyes. These changes occurred across the horizontal meridian of the eye and were greatest at the posterior pole. These ocular effects of focusing may partly explain the influence of close work on development of short-sightedness.

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.
