Twenty hatchling chickens were injected intravitreally every 4 days from day 2 to day 16 with dimethyl sulphoxide (DS) in one eye and DS or formoguanamine dissolved in DS (FG.DS) with or without occlusion in the other (FG.DS.MD, DS.MD, FG.DS). At day 16, the FG.DS.MD eyes failed to show the high refractive myopia and showed less axial elongation than that developed by the DS.MD eyes. Electroretinograms indicated that at the dosage used, FG.DS does not eliminate phototransduction. Light… CONTINUE READING
