Abstract

The specific retinal pathways that detect visual input and initiate the signaling for
refractive eye growth are unknown. We evaluated the potential contribution of
the three photoreceptor pathways: rods, cones, and intrinsically photosensitive
retinal ganglion cells (ipRGCs) by evaluating refractive development and the
response to form-deprivation (FD) in mice with mutations in these
photoreceptors.
