Researchers partially attribute these myopic shifts to less time spent outdoors, which can affect axial elongation.
Multifocal lenses can reduce distance contrast sensitivity under photopic and mesopic conditions, a study shows.
Active myopia management may involve a higher startup cost, but these costs will likely balance out over the course of one’s lifetime.
Schools should consider implementing strategies to mitigate myopia prevalence among their students.
Mean daily wearing time also influenced spherical equivalent refraction and axial length changes, with full-time wearers experiencing less of a change in both variables compared with part-time wearers.
Both aspheric lens designs reduced visual quality and altered binocular vision more than the concentric circle design.
The new classification system may be able to differentiate between glaucomatous and non-glaucomatous visual field loss.
Increased educational pressures and reduced time outdoors may influence myopic shifts in children as they progress through grade levels in school.
For too long, we have accepted that myopia and myopia progression are normal aspects of aging. With new management tools and treatment options, this message needs to change immediately.
Despite being the preferred method of refraction, cycloplegia can present unique challenges that result in suboptimal participation within school-based vision centers.
Sensitivity for detecting lesions in the superior and inferior sectors underwent a maximal increase using the eye-steering technique compared with other quadrants.
Patients with myopia often report dissatisfaction with the need for reading glasses following cataract surgery, despite becoming emmetropic.
Children spend approximately 75% of their daily awake time using electronic devices, with potentially damaging ocular consequences, the study shows.
Older age, increased IOP, thinner central cornea, higher vertical cup/disc ratio, and longer axial length were also highly associated with open-angle glaucoma incidence.
A modest myopic shift is often detected in pseudophakic children 5 years following cataract surgery.
Choroidal thinning continued in children with rapid myopia progression at follow up, but not in those with steady progression.
Despite the dual-focus contact lens design’s effectiveness in slowing myopia progression, they may cause a reduced accommodative response during near work, a study shows.
Clinicians may eventually be able to achieve trial-free fitting of orthokeratology lenses using a novel sagittal height fitting algorithm, according to a report.
An association between comatic aberration and axial length was established in patients with high myopia, but not in those with moderate myopia, a study shows.
Smaller conjunctival ultraviolet autofluorescence areas, parental myopia, and education ending at secondary school, are associated with myopia incidence, a study shows.
