topography-guided ablation in one eye (group I) and Q-factor customized ablation in the other eye (group II).
Alcon/Wavelight Light Laser Technolo¬gie (GmbH, Erlangen, Germany) will be used for photoablation.
The wavelight Topolyzer (Wavelight AG, Erlan¬gen, Germany) will be used before and 1, 3 and 6 months after PRK. Refrac¬tive visual outcomes and corneal aberration changes will be compared between the two treatment modalities.

Study of low dose atropine in preventing the onset and progression of myopia in high risk children with pre-myopia or low-myopia.
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 ...
The myopia prevalence in schoolchildren is high in Taiwan. The myopia progression is fast in children and often associated high myopia in later life. This prospective and randomized study ...
The purpose of this study is to find out if undercorrection of myopia slow down the progression of myopia in kindergarten children.
Our project is a 24-month longitudinal randomized controlled trial that aims to investigate the myopia development after topical application of 0.01% atropine in children with either fast ...
With the growing prevalence of myopia, already at epidemic levels in some countries, there is an urgent need for new management approaches. However, with the increasing number of research publications...
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...
Myopia is increasing worldwide and possibly linked to education. In this study, we analyse the association of myopia and education in the U.S. and investigate its age-dependency.
In the nineteenth century, the prevalence of myopia began to rise, and Cohn stressed the role of education. Later, based on twin studies, Sorsby argued that refraction was almost totally genetically d...
Preschool myopia generally indicated a high risk of progression to high myopia. However, no previous study has reported its longitudinal evolution. This study aimed to investigate the longitudinal cha...
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.
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, ...
