An ultrastructural examination of the outer retina and choroid of hatchling chicks reared for periods of 1, 2 or 4 weeks with opaque occluders (MD) covering one eye, was instigated to elucidate the mechanism of deprivation myopia. Refractive myopia (approximately 20 D), retinal and choroidal thinning were induced in all deprived eyes. Electron microscopy showed significant changes in the MD eyes compared to normals. Cone inner segments were markedly thicker and outer segment lamellae more… CONTINUE READING
