Controlling Progression of Myopia: Optical and Pharmaceutical Strategies.

Summary of "Controlling Progression of Myopia: Optical and Pharmaceutical Strategies."

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 control the progression of myopia. We provide an overview of the literature on the use of optical (spectacles, contact lenses, and orthokeratology) and pharmaceutical approaches to slow progress of myopia. The evidence indicates that myopia progression can be slowed by varying degrees using these strategies. All approaches play a role in the management of myopia as needs and requirements of an individual vary based on age, suitability, affordability, safety of the approach, subjective needs of the individual, and rate of progression. This review also identifies and discusses the lack of long-term efficacy data and rebound on discontinuation of myopia control products.

Longitudinal Changes in Spherical Equivalent Refractive Error Among Children With Preschool Myopia.

Preschool myopia generally indicated a high risk of progression to high myopia. However, no previous study has reported its longitudinal evolution. This study aimed to investigate the longitudinal cha...

Progress and Control of Myopia by Light Environments.

During the past 30 years, the prevalence rate of myopia has been increased dramatically. Myopia has become one of the leading causes of vision loss in some countries, whereas the mechanism of the main...

Imaging in myopia: potential biomarkers, current challenges and future developments.

Myopia is rapidly increasing in Asia and around the world, while it is recognised that complications from high myopia may cause significant visual impairment. Thus, imaging the myopic eye is important...

Dopamine Receptor Subtypes Mediate Opposing Effects on Form Deprivation Myopia in Pigmented Guinea Pigs.

We reported previously that changes in dopamine receptor (DR) subtype activation modulate spontaneous myopia progression in albino guinea pigs. To determine if DR control of refractive error developme...

From evidence to clinical practice: myopia control among children in refraction clinics.

Over the past decade, breakthrough has been made on myopia progression control with a lot of evidence from clinical trials, but the effective clinical application of many of them remained immature. Th...

Combined Atropine With Orthokeratology in Childhood Myopia Control (AOK) -A Randomized Controlled Trial

This study aims to compare effects in retardation of myopia progression of combined ortho-k and 0.01% atropine therapy with those of ortho-k alone.Myopia control methods mainly focus on op...

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 ...

The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether bifocal soft contact lenses (CLs) with low addition and nasally decentered optical zone are effective in controlling myopic progression in ...

Myopia Control Using Optimized Optical Defocus RCTs

The aims of the study is to evaluate whether the DISC3.5 Plus contact lens will slow myopia progression and axial length growth in myopic children as compared with single vision soft conta...

Efficacy and Safety of Posterior Scleral Reinforcement on Controlling Myopia in Adults With High Myopia

This study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of posterior scleral reinforcement on controlling myopia progression, including change in refraction, axial elongation as well as sight-thr...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Excessive axial myopia associated with complications (especially posterior staphyloma and CHOROIDAL NEOVASCULARIZATION) that can lead to BLINDNESS.

The use of light interaction (scattering, absorption, and fluorescence) with biological tissue to obtain morphologically based information. It includes measuring inherent tissue optical properties such as scattering, absorption, and autofluorescence; or optical properties of exogenous targeted fluorescent molecular probes such as those used in optical MOLECULAR IMAGING, or nontargeted optical CONTRAST AGENTS.

The combination of genetic and optical methods in controlling specific events with temporal precision in targeted cells of a functioning intact biological system.

Products or parts of products used to detect, manipulate, or analyze light, such as LENSES, refractors, mirrors, filters, prisms, and OPTICAL FIBERS.

An imaging method using LASERS that is used for mapping subsurface structure. When a reflective site in the sample is at the same optical path length (coherence) as the reference mirror, the detector observes interference fringes.
