Abstract
The cornea does not play any significant role in accommodation and is not expected to alter in curvature during the process. Nevertheless, some residual shape change may occur. In this paper we present preliminary results of a study in which we looked at the shape of the cornea for two separate accommodative states. Corneal power was measured with a Javal keratometer in tow states of the eye on one eye each from 12 emmetropic subjects aged between 20 and 28 years. These results suggest that there may be slight changes in central corneal curvature with accommodation.
