AbstractOcular biometric parameters, including full shape crystalline lens, were assessed in myopes and emmetropes using 3-D optical coherence tomography. The anterior chamber depth, the radius of the curvature of the anterior cornea, anterior lens, and posterior lens, lens thickness, lens equatorial diameter, surface area, equatorial position, volume, and power, were evaluated as functions of refractive errors and axial lengths while controlling for age effects. The crystalline lens appears to change with myopia consistent with lens thinning, equatorial, and capsular stretching while keeping constant volume. Axial elongation appears counteracted by a crystalline lens power reduction, while corneal power remains unaffected.
