    A paper by Sandra Wagner was accepted in a professional journal.

    The scientific article "Emmetropes and myopes differ little in their accommodation dynamics but strongly in their ciliary muscle morphology" by HFA PhD student Sandra Wagner has been published in the October edition 2019 of the journal Vision Research. The article deals with the possible connection between near vision and development of myopia. The accommodation process in emmetropes and myopes was investigated with respect to morphological changes of the ciliary muscle and performance changes of the lens for different accommodation requirements. The paper was prepared in collaboration with PhD supervisor and Hector Fellow Eberhard Zrenner and Torsten Strasser.
