Correlation Between Myopia and Major Biometric Parameters of the Eye: A Retrospective Clinical Study.
Purpose. To investigate the relationship between myopia and changes in ocular biometry and macular thickness in young adults. Methods. Two hundred sixteen eyes from 108 adults (23.3 +/- 6.3 years old, mean +/- SD) were measured for refractive status, corneal curvature, and axial components of the eye. Macular thickness was measured in 118 eyes (59 subjects) by optical coherence tomography. All eyes were categorized into emmetropia, low, moderate, or high myopia based on the refractive status. Biometric results from right eyes of all subjects were compared between sub-groups with the linear correlation analyzed between refraction and other parameters for each ...Read Full Article
