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.

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...
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...
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...
The purpose of this study is to compare visual acuity and redness of eyes between a new contact lens and an already marketed contact lens.
The purpose of this study is to compare lens characteristics and comfort between an experimental contact lens and a marketed contact lens.
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...
The increased prevalence of myopia in the United States and other regions of the world, and the sight-threatening problems associated with higher levels of myopia have led to great interest in researc...
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...
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...
To compare rates of myopia progression and adverse events between orthokeratology (OK) and soft contact lens (SCL) wearers over a 10-year period in schoolchildren.
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.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
