Cambridge Anti-Myopia Trial: Accommodation Training and Aberration Control in Myopia Development

2014-08-27 03:45:04 | BioPortfolio


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 progression.


Myopia is a burgeoning health and social problem. Currently there is no acceptable clinical treatment that prevents progression. This study is a double masked placebo controlled block randomized clinical trial of two interventions, to treat accommodative factors we have identified as being significantly correlated to myopia progression (rather than to the presence of myopia). We have shown that the interventions normalise the accommodative factors, and this trial examines the effect of these interventions on myopia progression.

Measuring the Peripheral Optical Quality of The Eye

The goal of the study is to quantify wavefront aberration profiles of the eye with and without contact lens across the visual field. This will enable us to investigate the impact of the ab...

Myopia Control With Simultaneous Vision Approach

The investigators hypothesize that the natural process of emmetropization in human is regulated by the equilibrium between the opposite hyperopic and myopic defocus. A sharp focus of retin...

Evaluation of Visual Performance With Contact Lenses

This study will evaluate the influence of contact lens optical design on visual performance using standard and multifocal soft contact lenses (MFCLs).

Randomized, Prospective Comparison of the Outcome of Toric Implantable Contact Lens (TICL) and Q-LASIK for the Correction of Myopia With Astigmatism

The objective is to conduct a contralateral prospective clinical study to compare the safety, efficacy, and quality of vision of the STAAR Surgical Co. Toric Implantable Contact Lens TIC...

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...

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...

Visual Acuity and Over-refraction in Myopic Children Fitted with Soft Multifocal Contact Lenses.

Practitioners fitting contact lenses for myopia control frequently question whether a myopic child can achieve good vision with a high-add multifocal. We demonstrate that visual acuity is not differen...

Third-order aberration coefficients of a thick lens with a given value of its focal length.

The formulas are derived for calculation of the third-order aberration (Seidel) coefficients for a thick spherical lens in air with a given value of its focal length and for an object at infinity in t...

Predictive Potential of Eyelids and Tear Film in Determining Symptoms in Contact Lens Wearers.

Early diagnosis of clinical markers of contact lens discomfort can help clinicians set realistic expectations and monitor and provide prophylactic management for contact lens wearers.

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 c...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The shifting and or tilting of implanted artificial lens resulting in impaired vision.

Absence of crystalline lens totally or partially from field of vision, from any cause except after cataract extraction. Aphakia is mainly congenital or as result of LENS DISLOCATION AND SUBLUXATION.

Sterile solutions used to clean and disinfect contact lenses.

Plastic surgery of the SCLERA. This procedure is used frequently to prevent blindness and poor vision in patients, especially children, with MYOPIA.

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.
