I was in the process of researching whether or not I would qualify for Lasik eye surgery… One of the stipulations was the fact that people who have a history of keloid scarring may not be able to have the surgery performed.
So I got to thinking, keloid production is a form of hypertrophy. So, does the fact that a person is prone to keloid scarring have anything to do with the tearing down and building up process involved in body building? Is there any research/ correlation between this and performance?
It would make sense…if an individual has a greater genetic potential for hypertrophy, then that could apply to all areas of the body…eyes included.
What has me thinking its not related though, is the fact that an individual’s potential for hypertrophy is largely a factor of their dominant fiber types. Fast twitch guys are going to grow more easily than the slow twitch ones.
Since your eyes (as far as I know) are not composed of muscle fibers and do not consist of varying amounts of materials, each with different growth potentials, I dont think the two are related.
Cool though though.
