    Comparison of Corneal Layers and Anterior Sclera in Emmetropic and Myopic Eyes

    Purpose: The aim of this study was to compare the thickness of preocular tear film, corneal layers, and anterior sclera in patients with moderate to high myopia and emmetropia with anterior segment spectral domain optical coherence tomography. Methods: This cross-sectional comparative study included 31 patients with high myopia and 31 emmetropic healthy controls. Patients with myopia had axial lengths ranging from 24 to 29 mm, whereas age-matched controls had axial lengths from 21 to 23.9 mm. Patients with myopia had refractive errors from −4.00 to −11.00 diopters spherical equivalent. Preocular tear film, corneal epithelium, Bowman layer, stroma ...
