Morphological changes of the human crystalline lens in myopia, published in Biomedical Optics Express


Custom quantitative 3-D OCT has been used to image the full crystalline lens in vivo in young myopes. We found that with myopia (and increased axial length) lens thins, equatorial, and capsular stretch while keeping constant volume. Axial elongation appears counteracted by a crystalline lens power reduction, while corneal power remains unaffected.
