Axial elongation

(Redirected from Axial length change)
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Axial elongation is an increase in the axial length of the eyeball. This results in a higher degree of myopia, which is exactly what we're trying to avoid!

Axial elongation in a lens-induced myopia context is primarily caused by hyperopic defocus, typically close-up activity while wearing glasses that are too powerful for the distance in question.
