I wonder if nearwork can make axial myopia worse faster than we think

I can’t help but wonder if the increased curvature of the lens being maintained for an excessive amount of time during closeup could mechanically push on the fluid behind it and cause the eye to elongate within hours (remember the choroid changes observed in those studies in less than one hour).

If IOP goes up, I would not be surprised.

Just another one of my thoughts.

Maybe this answers your question ?
