The human cornea is affected by the magnitude and velocity of both internal and external forces because the cornea has both static and dynamic resistance components. Considering these natures of the human cornea, many investigators have tried to demonstrate corneal biomechanical properties to understand these characteristics of the cornea. Corneal biomechanical properties are known to influence the accuracy of measurements in intraocular pressure (IOP) and are recognized as important factor to explain the susceptibility of development of glaucomatous damage. Until recently, the only instrument which enabled the in vivo measurements of the ocular biomechanical properties was ocular response analyzer (ORA, Reichert Ophthalmic Instruments, Depew, NY, USA).8 The ORA has been used to assess the biomechanical properties of the cornea according to the dynamic bidirectional applanation process. A dynamic Scheimpflug analyzer (corneal visualization Scheimpflug technology [Corvis ST], OCULUS, Wetzlar, Germany) has been introduced recently and has become a useful instrument for evaluating corneal biomechanical properties. The dynamic Scheimpflug analyzer captures the dynamic process of corneal deformation caused by an air puff using an ultra-high-speed Scheimpflug camera at a rate of up to 4,330 images per second. Until now, well-organized analysis on the normative data of the corneal biomechanical profiles measured with the dynamic Scheimpflug analyzer for young healthy adults has not been reported yet. Hence, in the present study, we aim to conduct normative data analysis for the corneal biomechanical properties with the dynamic Scheimpflug analyzer in a cohort of young healthy adults in South Korea.

With the increasing prevalence in myopia there is growing interest in active myopia prevention. This study aims to increase our understanding of parental attitudes to myopia development and control, a...
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...

To test the hypothesis that genes known to cause clinical syndromes featuring myopia also harbor polymorphisms contributing to nonsyndromic refractive errors.
High myopia and pathologic myopia are common causes of visual morbidity. Myopic pathology can affect all regions of the retina, though there is currently no classification system to distinguish anteri...
A mass spectrometry technique using two (MS/MS) or more mass analyzers. With two in tandem, the precursor ions are mass-selected by a first mass analyzer, and focused into a collision region where they are then fragmented into product ions which are then characterized by a second mass analyzer. A variety of techniques are used to separate the compounds, ionize them, and introduce them to the first mass analyzer. For example, for in GC-MS/MS, GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY-MASS SPECTROMETRY is involved in separating relatively small compounds by GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY prior to injecting them into an ionization chamber for the mass selection.
Excessive axial myopia associated with complications (especially posterior staphyloma and CHOROIDAL NEOVASCULARIZATION) that can lead to BLINDNESS.
A term used in Eastern European research literature for the functional neural unit that provides the basis for differential sensitivity; the analyzer consists of receptor, afferent nerves, and their central connections. (From Campbell's Psychiatric Dictionary, 8th ed.)
Plastic surgery of the SCLERA. This procedure is used frequently to prevent blindness and poor vision in patients, especially children, with MYOPIA.
Systematic study of the body and the use of its static and dynamic position as a means of communication.
Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine that is devoted to the study and treatment of eye diseases. As well as mild visual defects correctable by lenses, ophthalmology is concerned with glaucoma, uveitis and other serious conditions affecting the eye, ...
