PURPOSE To correlate specific parameters of lens structure (anterior and posterior suture branch length and planar area) with variability in back vertex distance (BVD) and scatter in rabbit lenses as a function of development, growth, and age. METHODS Lenses from juvenile (n = 9), adult (n = 9), and aged (n = 10) New Zealand White rabbits were utilized in this study. After sacrifice, lens suture patterns were photographed using a stereo surgical dissecting microscope. Within 5 min of… CONTINUE READING
