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 ...
Study of low dose atropine in preventing the onset and progression of myopia in high risk children with pre-myopia or low-myopia.
Study Objectives The objectives for this randomized trial are: 1. To determine the efficacy of daily low-dose atropine (0.01%) for slowing myopia progression over a two-year...
This study will try to identify the gene or genes responsible for myopia (nearsightedness) and to examine the relationship between myopia and near work. Myopia is the most common eye disor...
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 ...
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.
Compare the precision of doxycycline quantification in tear fluid collected with either Schirmer strips or polyvinyl acetal (PVA) sponges following oral drug administration.
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...
The tear-forming and tear-conducting system which includes the lacrimal glands, eyelid margins, conjunctival sac, and the tear drainage system.
Development of a library collection, including the determination and coordination of selection policy, assessment of needs of users and potential users, collection use studies, collection evaluation, identification of collection needs, selection of materials, planning for resource sharing, collection maintenance and weeding, and budgeting.
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.
Forcible or traumatic tear or break of an organ or other soft part of the body.
