Perspective: how might emmetropization
and genetic factors produce myopia in normal eyes?
2-6) However, current knowledge on emmetropization
indicates that individual biometric components are not important by themselves and that emmetropization
is a result of a balance among these components.
Effects of foveal ablation on emmetropization
and form-deprivation myopia.
Medina's feedback model for emmetropization
predicts that correction of myopes aggravates their condition and myopia will then progress linearly.
The main concerns about treatment relate to how important hyperopia really is in the emmetropization
process and the lack of evidence that correcting hyperopia in children can positively impact on school performance (2,3).
Effect of ocular alignment on emmetropization
in children <10 years with amblyopia.
and optical development of the eye of the barn owl (Tyto alba).
Perhaps the most interesting point surrounded the process of emmetropization
, which is often mistaken to continue until a child is about 5-6 years of age; in fact the process normally occurs in the first 18-24 months of life and this is important to remember since practitioners often erroneously decide against correcting refractive error for fear of affecting emmetropization
, in a child of school-going age.

is a process of matching the axial length of the eye to the focal length of its optics.
As they grow, their eyes lengthen until all images fall perfectly on the retina, a process called emmetropization
Ocular component changes during emmetropization
in infancy (abstract).
