The objective of the study is to determine if habitual or adapted contact lens wearers of Omafilcon A can be confidently refit into Somofilcon A lenses and be successful after one week of ...
The primary objective of this trial is to validate the improvements made to the OK inversion indicator. Visibility on eye and on finger will be assessed by the subjects
The objective of the study is to evaluate the performance of somofilcon A 1 day multifocal when worn on a daily disposable wear modality over a period of up to 3 weeks.
The trial intends to compare the extent to which symptoms improve in symptomatic daily wear contact lens wearers who replace their lenses at intervals of 2 weeks or monthly when fit with D...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the performance of the nelfilcon A lens compared to a competitive daily disposable lens, narafilcon A, in a population of neophytes (new wearers).
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...
To test the hypothesis that genes known to cause clinical syndromes featuring myopia also harbor polymorphisms contributing to nonsyndromic refractive errors.
The outermost surface composition of 11 silicone hydrogel (SiHy) lenses was measured using X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) to understand differences in wettability and potential interactions wi...
To evaluate the incidence and progression of myopia and factors associated with progression of myopia in school going children in Delhi.
Myopia progression is thought to involve biomechanical weakening of the sclera, which leads to irreversible deformations and axial elongation of the eye. Scleral crosslinking has been proposed as a po...
Excessive axial myopia associated with complications (especially posterior staphyloma and CHOROIDAL NEOVASCULARIZATION) that can lead to BLINDNESS.
Plastic surgery of the SCLERA. This procedure is used frequently to prevent blindness and poor vision in patients, especially children, with MYOPIA.
A type of refractive surgery of the CORNEA to correct MYOPIA and ASTIGMATISM. An EXCIMER LASER is used directly on the surface of the EYE to remove some of the CORNEAL EPITHELIUM thus reshaping the anterior curvature of the cornea.
Detachment of the corpus vitreum (VITREOUS BODY) from its normal attachments, especially the retina, due to shrinkage from degenerative or inflammatory conditions, trauma, myopia, or senility.
A refractive error in which rays of light entering the EYE parallel to the optic axis are brought to a focus in front of the RETINA when accommodation (ACCOMMODATION, OCULAR) is relaxed. This results from an overly curved CORNEA or from the eyeball being too long from front to back. It is also called nearsightedness.
