Optical feedback controlled scleral remodeling as a mechanism for myopic eye growth.

Abstract

Experimental studies of myopia have demonstrated that optical errors imposed on a developing eye will stimulate elongation of the globe, although the mechanism of axial growth is not well understood. In this study, a mathematical model of eye growth is presented in which expansion of the globe occurs as the elastic deformations of the scleral shell are… (More)
