7-methylxanthine does not prevent induced myopia in tree shrews

We investigated the effect of systemic administration of 7MX on induced myopia in tree shrews and showed that oral 7MX appears to have either no, or very limited influence on compensatory refractive responses.

Effect of wavelength on achieving and maintaining emmetropia (PI, Tim Gawne)

This project aims to determine the operating characteristics of the tree shrew emmetropisation system in response to different light spectra.
