Abstract

Anterior segment optical coherence tomography is a new method to explore the anterior chamber. The target can be focused and defocused with positive or negative lenses to reproduce the conditions of natural accommodation. We studied accommodation in an albino patient because the absence of pigment allows the infrared beam to penetrate the iris and explore the modifications of the ciliary body and the crystalline lens during natural accommodation in a human subject.
