Myopia is a type of refractive disorder. KBI has screened a large cohort of monkeys and identified 10% to 13% myopia at an age of 5 years or older. We have a large cohort of monkeys with moderate to severe myopia available and they have been successfully used for the evaluation of various therapeutic treatments.
Spontaneous myopia is routinely examined with the following techniques:
· optometry examination and measurement axial length
· fundus photograph
· optical coherence tomography (OCT)
· MRI imaging
