In a recent study performed that we have performed at the laboratory of the University of Valencia we have assessed the central lens thickness, the anterior lens curvature and the ciliary muscle area in young adults and adults for unaccommodate state and with a vergence stimulus of -3D. Our results revealed that with aging, the eye undergoes anatomical changes that have an impact on the quality of vision and thus, of life. Studying these variations provide clinicians with interesting information about the aging process of the eye that can be useful in order to provide new methods aimed at delaying the appearance of presbyopia.
