Researchers found a significant increase between 1999 and 2008 compared with astigmatism rates between 1971 and 1975.
Patients implanted with foldable iris-fixated phakic intraocular lenses may experience annual changes in refractive error, visual acuity, and axial length, making the devices a long-term, but not permanent solution.
Older age, increased IOP, thinner central cornea, higher vertical cup/disc ratio, and longer axial length were also highly associated with open-angle glaucoma incidence.
A study shows a statistically significant increase of 0.1 mm in axial length after posterior chamber phakic intraocular lens implantation.
The technology was reliable for these patients, except for trefoil, the study shows.
Researchers note a sharp reduction of corneal nerves after the procedure, but only a slight and temporary decrease in corneal sensitivity.
A study shows a faster visual recovery, better low-contrast acuity, and greater improvements in uncorrected acuity.
The lenses are a safe choice to restore lost visual acuity originally achieved by PRK or LASIK.
The study evaluated the refractive, visual, and aberrometric outcomes of the refractive procedures.
The pandemic safety measure led to more instances of convergence insufficiency in children, a report shows.
Efficacy and safety of 3 different doses of atropine sulfate (DE-127) ophthalmic solution at slowing myopia progression.
The risk accelerated at around -6.00 D, and further accelerated at -8 D, according to a study.
Researchers monitored 3 posterior corneal elevation parameters for early signs of corneal ectasia in the 7-year review.
For patients with low or moderate myopic or hyperopic correction in keratorefractive surgery, research shows later trifocal IOLs are safe and accurate.
The researchers suggest timely macula screening for patients in middle age with high myopia.
A school-based vision program, which provides eye examinations and eye glasses to students, has a one-year positive impact on reading scores.
Sandra Lora Cremers, MD, Alina Dumitrescu, MD, and optometric educator Neeraj K. Singh, BSOptom, speculate about the damage done from more than a year of online education, and how eye care professionals can offer aid.
The research indicates that anteroposterior traction caused by axial elongation leads to the condition.
The intervention shows 2 outdoor hours per day helped keep myopia prevalence stable, even with increased screen time.
Children with moderate astigmatism who either wore glasses or were observed had similar rates of strabismus or amblyopia.
