Biological Mechanisms of Atropine Control of Myopia.

Myopia is a global problem that is increasing at an epidemic rate in the world. Although the refractive error can be corrected easily, myopes, particularly those with high myopia, are susceptible to potentially blinding eye diseases later in life. Despite a plethora of myopia research, the molecular/cellular mechanisms underlying the development of myopia are not well understood, preventing the search for the most effective pharmacological control. Consequently, several approaches to slowing down myopia pro...

Biomarkers in Tears and Ocular Surface: A Window for Neurodegenerative Diseases.

The purpose of this review is to briefly outline current scientific evidence on the potential role of tear analysis and ocular surface evaluation in diagnosis and monitoring of neurodegenerative diseases, especially Alzheimer disease, Parkinson disease, and glaucoma.

Comparison of Biomicroscopy and Light Microscopy Findings in Demodex Diagnosis in Patients With Chronic Blepharitis.

We aimed to compare the results of biomicroscopic examination and light microscopy in the diagnosis of Demodex infestation in chronic blepharitis cases.

Clinical Findings and Ocular Symptoms Over 1 Year in a Sample of Scleral Lens Wearers.

To report the fitting aspects, clinical findings, and symptoms over 12 months of scleral lens (SL) wear.

Effect of Orthokeratology Lens on Contrast Sensitivity Function and High-Order Aberrations in Children and Adults.

Overnight orthokeratology (OOK) lenses are used to temporarily decrease myopic refractive error and improve uncorrected vision. Overnight orthokeratology lenses significantly increase ocular and corneal high-order aberrations (HOAs) and compromise contrast sensitivity function (CSF) to a degree correlated with myopic correction achieved. In Taiwan, OOK lenses are mainly used in children for myopia control. However, information regarding its effects in this population remains limited. This study discusses th...

Distribution of Different Corneal Topography Patterns in Iranian Schoolchildren: The Shahroud Schoolchildren Eye Cohort Study.

To determine the distribution of corneal topography patterns (CTPs) in children aged 6 to 12 years and its association with the central corneal thickness (CCT), axial length (AL), mean corneal power (MCP), and corneal astigmatism (CA).

Reliable, Noncontact Imaging Tool for the Evaluation of Meibomian Gland Function: Sirius Meibography.

To investigate the correlation between the clinical grading of the severity of meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) and meibomian gland area (MGA) loss detected using Sirius meibography in the upper and lower eyelids and to correlate these parameters with dry eye signs and symptoms.

Disrupted Glycocalyx as a Source of Ocular Surface Biomarkers.

The glycocalyx is a dense and diverse coat of glycans and glycoconjugates responsible for maintaining cell surface integrity and regulating the interaction of cells with the external environment. Transmembrane mucins such as MUC1 and MUC16 comprise a major component of the epithelial glycocalyx and are currently used to monitor disease progression in cancer. At the ocular surface, multiple lines of evidence indicate that abnormal expression of the enzymes responsible for glycan biosynthesis during pathologi...

Intrasession Repeatability of the Contact Angle Measured Using the Captive Bubble Method and Agreement Assessed Between Different Analysis Software Programs.

The material biocompatibility of hydrogel and silicone hydrogel (SiHy) contact lens (CL) is of paramount importance in CL wear because a decrease in CL wettability reduces wearer comfort and increases wearer dropout. The aim of this study is to report on the repeatability and agreement between two different software programs that measure the contact angle with the captive bubble method in marketed CLs, which will help to translate this information into clinical practice.

Imaging Biomarkers for Dry Eye Disease.

The clinical, scientific, economic, and regulatory impact of validated biomarkers and surrogate endpoints has the potential to revolutionize the approach to ocular surface diseases. At present, there is a growing interest in developing biomarkers for dry eye disease, and other ocular surface disorders and imaging are of the most promising approaches to this issue. Among the several and constantly evolving imaging technologies, some tools that are aimed to assess tear film stability and volume, meibomian gla...

A New Perspective on Dry Eye Classification: Proposal by the Asia Dry Eye Society.

The 2017 consensus report of the Asia Dry Eye Society (ADES) on the definition and diagnosis of dry eyes described dry eye disease as "Dry eye is a multifactorial disease characterized by unstable tear film causing a variety of symptoms and/or visual impairment, potentially accompanied by ocular surface damage." The report emphasized the instability of tear film and the importance of visual dysfunction in association with dry eyes, highlighting the importance of the evaluation of tear film stability. This r...
