PURPOSE To investigate refraction, corneal curvature, axial components, and the correlations between the refraction and ocular growth during the emmetropization in the C57BL/6 mouse. METHODS Ten groups of 10 mice underwent ocular measurements at 22 to 102 days after birth. Refraction was measured by photoretinoscopy and corneal radius of curvature (CRC) was measured by keratometry. Corneal thickness (CT), anterior chamber depth (ACD), lens thickness (LT), vitreous chamber depth (VCD), retinal… CONTINUE READING
