Tracking scientific research publications on the evaluation, utility and implementation of genomic applications is critical for the translation of basic research to impact clinical and population heal...
With the growing prevalence of myopia, already at epidemic levels in some countries, there is an urgent need for new management approaches. However, with the increasing number of research publications...
The burden associated with the rising prevalence of myopia and high myopia, and the associated vision impairment and sight-threatening complications, has triggered the need to evaluate strategies to c...
Study of low dose atropine in preventing the onset and progression of myopia in high risk children with pre-myopia or low-myopia.
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 ...
The myopia prevalence in schoolchildren is high in Taiwan. The myopia progression is fast in children and often associated high myopia in later life. This prospective and randomized study ...
The purpose of this study is to find out if undercorrection of myopia slow down the progression of myopia in kindergarten children.
Our project is a 24-month longitudinal randomized controlled trial that aims to investigate the myopia development after topical application of 0.01% atropine in children with either fast ...
Excessive axial myopia associated with complications (especially posterior staphyloma and CHOROIDAL NEOVASCULARIZATION) that can lead to BLINDNESS.
Laboratory and other services provided to patients at the bedside. These include diagnostic and laboratory testing using automated information entry.
Plastic surgery of the SCLERA. This procedure is used frequently to prevent blindness and poor vision in patients, especially children, with MYOPIA.
Allows patient diagnoses in the physician’s office, in other ambulatory setting or at bedside. The results of care are timely, and allow rapid treatment to the patient. (from NIH Fact Sheet Point-of-Care Diagnostic Testing, 2010.)
A type of refractive surgery of the CORNEA to correct MYOPIA and ASTIGMATISM. An EXCIMER LASER is used directly on the surface of the EYE to remove some of the CORNEAL EPITHELIUM thus reshaping the anterior curvature of the cornea.
