The purpose of the present study was to determine the regional blood flow in the myopic chick eye during and after short-term monocular form deprivation. Chicks were monocularly form-deprived by covering one eye with a translucent occluder for 7-10 days. The anterior chamber-lens distance, the vitreous chamber length and the axial length of the eye were measured by ultrasonography, the equatorial diameter was measured with calipers and the size of the eye was estimated by weighing.
