Effectiveness of Orthokeratology in Myopia Control

Orthokeratology (ortho-k), when used for partial or full correction of myopia, has been shown to slow myopic progression in children by 36-56% as compared to their spectacle or contact-lens wearing peers.1 This effect is achieved by limiting the axial elongation of the eye,1, 2,3, 4 which is of particular concern ...

Phase N/A

Shanghai Eye Study for Older People

Blindness and visual impairment severely impact the visual health and life quality of people, particularly the 2.566 million senior citizens aged at 65 and above in Shanghai. The main reason is uncorrected refractive error, of which, 62.1% can be solved through refractive correction. For this reason, the uncorrected refractive errors ...

Phase N/A

VisuMax Femtosecond Laser Small Incision Lenticule Extraction for the Correction of High Myopia

Laser refractive surgery (LASIK and PRK) has been established for 25 years to treat myopia (short-sightedness). Over this time, the technology has been significantly improved to enable safe treatment of myopia up to -15D. Improvements including changing the shape of the lens of corneal tissue removed to better match the ...

Phase N/A

Effects of Macular Buckle Versus Vitrectomy on Macular Hole and Macular Detachment in Highly Myopic Eyes

A randomized, open label, single center study comparing the efficacy of macular muckle + gas injection versus internal limiting membrane peeling + gas tamponade on full-thickness macular hole associated with macular detachment in eyes with high myopia.

Phase N/A

Topography-Guided Customized PRK Versus Q-value Adjusted PRK in Correction of Myopia With or Without Astigmatism

This study will include patients who will undergo PRK in both eyes, for each patient each eye will be randomly allocated to one of 2 procedures: topography-guided ablation in one eye (group I) and Q-factor customized ablation in the other eye (group II). Alcon/Wavelight Light Laser Technologie (GmbH, Erlangen, Germany) ...

Phase N/A

Variation of Orthokeratology Lens Treatment Zone (VOLTZ) Study

Orthokeratology (Ortho-k) treatment reduces the degree of myopia of the eye by flattening the central cornea. This central flattened zone is referred to as the treatment zone (TZ). Munnerlyn's formula describes the negative correlation between refractive correction and treatment zone size given a maximum ablation depth limited by the patient's ...

Phase N/A

Comparison of Next Generation Laser Techniques of Myopia Correction: iDesign vs. SMILE

iDesign is a promising new technique to treat myopia with astigmatism using ocular aberrations measured with a high resolution wavefront sensor.[1,2] Early studies with iDesign platform has established its safety and efficacy in correction of myopia with fewer patients reporting night vision problems.[1,2] In keratoconus, iDesign has also provided excellent ...

Phase

A Study of a New Surgical Treatment of Macular Hole Retinal Detachment in High Myopia

This study uses a new surgical method (vitrectomy combined with inverted internal limiting membrane insertion and intraocular sterilized air tamponade) to assess its effectiveness and safety on the prognosis of macular hole retinal detachment secondary to high myopia, and also compares this new type of surgery with the current commonly ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Plum-blossom Needle vs. Tropicamide Eye Drops on Juvenile Myopia

Plum-blossom needle is a historical treatment technology of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and has been applied to ophthalmic diseases, such as myopia and glaucoma, for nearly one hundred years.

Phase N/A

Eye Drops Study for Myopia Control in Schoolchildren

Myopia onset earlier in children who would suffer a high degree of myopia in the future adulthood.and higher risk for retinal detachment, macular degeneration, and even blindness. In Taiwan, myopia macular degeneration is the first place of irreversible blind cause in the elderly. The evidence based medicine shows atropine is ...
