To investigate the prevalence and risk factors of Uncorrected Refractive Errors (URE) for distance in elderly residents in 'homes for the aged' in Hyderabad, India.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: Ophthalmic & physiological optics : the journal of the British College of Ophthalmic Opticians (Optometrists)
Refractive errors are the product of a mismatch between the axial length of the eye and its optical power, creating blurred vision. Uncorrected refractive errors are the second leading cause of worldw...
In Australia, nationally representative data of the burden and associations of severe uncorrected refractive error is scarce.
Patients with poor vision screening results should be referred to an ophthalmology subspecialist for further testing to define the refractive error. Refractive errors are influenced by the optical pow...
Person-centered care is widely recognized as a gold standard and is based on a supportive psychosocial climate for both residents and staff in nursing homes. Residents and staff may have different per...
compare the quality of life (QOL) of aged residents in homes for aged people with or without symptoms of depression, and identify social, physical activity; leisure; health and basic activities of dai...
Blindness and visual impairment severely impact the visual health and life quality of people, particularly the 2.566 million senior citizens aged at 65 and above in Shanghai. The main reas...
Sleep disturbances are widespread among demented residents of board and care homes and are a leading cause for transfer into nursing homes. This study is a randomized controlled clinical ...
This Study determines the most precise method for measuring post-operative refraction following implantation of the asymmetric multifocal LS-313 MF30 comparing the results of Refraction of...
The purpose of this clinical trial is to determine if interventions within the nursing home to restore vision, or cope with visual loss, in residents with visual impairment result in impro...
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate, for the visual correction of aphakia, the safety and effectiveness of the RxSight Light Adjustable Lens (LAL) and Light Delivery Device ...
Housing arrangements for the elderly or aged, intended to foster independent living. The housing may take the form of group homes or small apartments. It is available to the economically self-supporting but the concept includes housing for the elderly with some physical limitations. The concept should be differentiated from HOMES FOR THE AGED which is restricted to long-term geriatric facilities providing supervised medical and nursing services.
Deviations from the average or standard indices of refraction of the eye through its dioptric or refractive apparatus.
A procedure to surgically correct REFRACTIVE ERRORS by cutting radial slits into the CORNEA to change its refractive properties.
Surgical procedures employed to correct REFRACTIVE ERRORS such as MYOPIA; HYPEROPIA; or ASTIGMATISM. These may involve altering the curvature of the CORNEA; removal or replacement of the CRYSTALLINE LENS; or modification of the SCLERA to change the axial length of the eye.
Errors or mistakes committed by health professionals which result in harm to the patient. They include errors in diagnosis (DIAGNOSTIC ERRORS), errors in the administration of drugs and other medications (MEDICATION ERRORS), errors in the performance of surgical procedures, in the use of other types of therapy, in the use of equipment, and in the interpretation of laboratory findings. Medical errors are differentiated from MALPRACTICE in that the former are regarded as honest mistakes or accidents while the latter is the result of negligence, reprehensible ignorance, or criminal intent.
