Figure 1: Model of a myopic eye. Illustrations are captioned with (x) for horizontal plane and (y) for vertical plane. (a) Axial cross-sectional image of an elongated myopic eye with posterior staphyloma (arrow). (b) Cross-sectional image of staphyloma with a smaller base curvature in the horizontal section. Structures lying in the staphyloma slope can be defined easier by vertical sections while horizontal section might be suffering from mirror artefacts. (c) Cross-sectional image of staphyloma with small base curvature in the vertical section; in this case vertical sections are expected to present mirror artefact
