Cambridge Anti-Myopia Trial: Accommodation Training and Aberration Control in Myopia Development
We have identified focussing problems related to myopia getting worse. Our trial uses optical and orthoptic interventions that correct the focussing problems to see if this retards myopia progression.
Myopia is a burgeoning health and social problem. Currently there is no acceptable clinical treatment that prevents progression. This study is a double masked placebo controlled block randomized clinical trial of two interventions, to treat accommodative factors we have identified as being significantly correlated to myopia progression (rather than to the presence of myopia). We have shown that the interventions normalise the accommodative factors, and this trial examines the effect of these interventions on myopia progression.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Absence of crystalline lens totally or partially from field of vision, from any cause except after cataract extraction. Aphakia is mainly congenital or as result of LENS DISLOCATION AND SUBLUXATION.
Contact Lens Solutions
Sterile solutions used to clean and disinfect contact lenses.
Plastic surgery of the SCLERA. This procedure is used frequently to prevent blindness and poor vision in patients, especially children, with MYOPIA.
Phakic Intraocular Lenses
Lenses, generally made of plastic or silicone, that are implanted into the eye in front of the natural EYE LENS, by the IRIS, to improve VISION, OCULAR. These intraocular lenses are used to supplement the natural lens instead of replacing it.
Lens Implantation, Intraocular
Insertion of an artificial lens to replace the natural CRYSTALLINE LENS after CATARACT EXTRACTION or to supplement the natural lens which is left in place.
The investigators hypothesize that the natural process of emmetropization in human is regulated by the equilibrium between the opposite hyperopic and myopic defocus. A sharp focus of retin...
The objective is to conduct a contralateral prospective clinical study to compare the safety, efficacy, and quality of vision of the STAAR Surgical Co. Toric Implantable Contact Lens TIC...
The purpose of this study is to compare visual acuity and redness of eyes between a new contact lens and an already marketed contact lens.
The purpose of this study is to compare lens characteristics and comfort between an experimental contact lens and a marketed contact lens.
The purpose of this study is to compare two marketed contact lens care solutions in regards to comfort and ocular health.
Scleral and corneal rigid lenses represented 100 per cent of the contact lens market immediately prior to the invention of soft lenses in the mid-1960s. In the United Kingdom today, rigid lenses compr...
PURPOSE: To evaluate the sociodemographic factors of myopia and the care of myopia in Korean children. METHODS: We a...
: To characterize and discover the determinants of the frequency of wear (FOW) of contact lenses.
We examined normal emmetropization and the refractive responses to binocular plus or minus lenses in young (late infantile) and juvenile tree shrews. In addition, recovery from lens-induced myopia was...
Contact lens wear is a common predisposing factor in microbial keratitis and is one of the two preventable risk factors for corneal infection in a working age population. Our understanding of the prev...
