Effects of Prismatic Spectacle Lenses on Symptoms of Dizziness, Headache and Anxiety as Caused by Vertical Heterophoria
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate whether, in patients diagnosed with Vertical Heterophoria, the symptoms of dizziness, headache and / or anxiety are reduced or eliminated when a kind of correction called vertical prism is added to the patient's normal eye glass prescription.
The experiment will involve giving the patient two pairs of glasses (one pair containing the baseline prescription with vertical prism (Standard Treatment Glasses) and the other pair containing the baseline prescription but without vertical prism (Placebo Glasses)) to demonstrate which pair of glasses is most effective in reducing the symptoms of dizziness, headache and / or anxiety in these patients.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
The professional practice of primary eye and vision care that includes the measurement of visual refractive power and the correction of visual defects with lenses or glasses.
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.
An alternative to REFRACTIVE SURGICAL PROCEDURES. A therapeutic procedure for correcting REFRACTIVE ERRORS. It involves wearing CONTACT LENSES designed to force corrective changes to the curvature of the CORNEA that remain after the lenses are removed. The effect is temporary but is maintained by wearing the therapeutic lenses daily, usually during sleep.
Artificial implanted lenses.
Lenses designed to be worn on the front surface of the eyeball. (UMDNS, 1999)
Evaluate the short-term corneal response of oxygen deprivation when using toric contact lenses. The response will be noted by endothelial bleb formation in both and open eye and closed ey...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate and compare the eyeball elongation in high myopic children using partial correction orthokeratology and single-vision spectacles.
To evaluate whether progressive addition lenses (PALs) slow the rate of progression of juvenile-onset myopia (nearsightedness) when compared with single vision lenses, as measured by cyclo...
This is a research study designed to test the utility of D-shaped bifocal lenses and PRIO Computer Lenses for persons using a computer. We hypothesize that lenses specially designed for...
The purpose of this study is to determine if the AcuFocus Corneal Inlay ACI 7000PDT will provide an effective method for the correction of presbyopia in patients who have normal distance v...
To investigate the efficacy of spherical aberration (SA) correction with aspheric contact lenses (aspheric lenses) based on lens power, and compare the results with those of spherical contact lenses (...
IMPORTANCE Myopia is a significant public health problem, making it important to determine whether a bifocal spectacle treatment involving near prism slows myopia progression in children. OBJECTIVE To...
Correction of spherical (SA) and longitudinal chromatic aberrations (LCA) significantly improves monocular visual acuity (VA). In this work, the visual effect of SA correction in polychromatic and mon...
As the desire for spectacle independence following cataract surgery grows, so does interest in the implantation of multifocal intraocular lenses. However, glare phenomena, reduced intermediate vision...
Purpose. Eye growth compensates in opposite directions to single vision (SV) negative and positive lenses. We evaluated the response of the guinea pig eye to Fresnel-type lenses incorporating two diff...
