A researcher analysed 98 adult subjects divided into three groups 35 myopic, 30 emmetropic and 33 hyperopic patients using RTVue SD-OCT and found that the average peripapillary RNFL thickness (r=-0.741, p<0.001) as well as RNFL thicknesses in all quadrants and sectors had significant negative correlations with axial length.19 Another researcher compared peripapillary RNFL thicknesses of short, medium and long eyes using Cirrus HD OCT and they displayed that average 360Adeg RNFL (r=-0.69, p<0.001) and RNFL of all quadrants become thinner as axial length increased.21

VRT is found to be significantly (P < 0.05) more in uncorrected myopic subjects as compared to emmetropic subjects for both red and green light stimuli (Table 1).
The mean spherical equivalent was statistically different among the myopic (-3.8 [+ or -] 2.2 D), emmetropic (+0.05 [+ or -] 0.5 D), and hyperopic groups (+3.0 [+ or -] 1.6 D) (all P < 0.0001).
Normal, non-pathological emmetropic eyes are the most common type amongst the population (43.2 percent), with a percentage that swings between 60.6 percent in children from three to eight years and 29 percent in those older than 66.
Seventy-four patients under the age of 13 years with high myopia (cycloplegic refraction values <6 D) and 77 emmetropic control children who presented to our Pediatric Ophthalmology Department were evaluated in the course of this study.
Domestic animals such as cats and dogs have been reported to be myopic (-0.78 [+ or -] 1.37 D) [9] and emmetropic (-0.05[+ or -] 1.36 D) [8], respectively.
The researchers also observed that during a short period of accommodation axial elongation was seen in both myopic and emmetropic patients.
Emmetropic group was defined as SER between +1.00 DS and -1.00 DS.
Untrained emmetropic pilots allowed to self-adjust the focusing mechanism for Apache night-vision goggles (optimum visual acuity 20/35, equivalent to about 0.6 D of blur) dialed in an average myopic error of -2.28 D.
As a cataract surgeon the author often asks patients who were ametropes all their lives and are now emmetropic what different path their lives would have taken if they'd had corrective surgery when they were young.
