Form-Deprivation and Lens-Induced Myopia Are Similarly Affected by Pharmacological Manipulation of the Dopaminergic System in Chicks

Thomson, Kate; Karouta, Cindy; Ashby, Regan


Purpose: Animal models have demonstrated a link between decreases in retinal dopamine levels and the development of form-deprivation myopia (FDM). However, the consistency of dopamine's role in the other major form of experimental myopia, that of lens-induced myopia (LIM), is less clear, raising the question as to what extent dopamine plays a role in human myopia. Therefore, to better define the role of dopamine in both forms of experimental myopia, we examined how consistent the protection...[Show more]
