PURPOSE To test whether eye growth changes produced by spectacle lens wear are mediated by changes in ciliary muscle tonus in chicks. METHODS Because there is evidence that deprivation myopia is based on a local-retinal mechanism in the eye that probably remains functional after cycloplegia as well as after ciliary ganglion or Edinger-Westphal lesions, none of these treatments provides insight into whether accommodation tonus is also important in the control of axial eye growth.
