While present evidence fails to support an etiologic mechanism for myopia based on accommodation or choroidal blood flow, atropine exhibits anti-myopia activity in many species. Accordingly, we studied choline acetyl transferase (ChAT) activity in the ciliary ganglion, uvea and retina of chicks with experimental macrophthalmos to identify a potential pathway for the moderation of eye growth by cholinergic neurons. Following unilateral lid suture or goggle, chicks were reared for 1 week under… CONTINUE READING
