Pathophysiology of accommodation and presbyopia. Understanding the clinical implications

J Fla Med Assoc. 1994 Apr;81(4):268-71.


As a consequence of a new understanding of the mechanism of accommodation, a unique surgical procedure has been developed which can reverse presbyopia. The basic pathophysiology involved in the development of presbyopia may have implications in the etiology and treatment of ocular hypertension and primary open angle glaucoma.
