The Collaborative Longitudinal Evaluation of Ethnicity and Refractive Error (CLEERE) Study

The Orinda Longitudinal Study of Myopia (OLSM) was started in 1989 to investigate normal eye growth and the development of myopia in over 1,200 school-aged children to date. Beginning in 1997, three parallel study phases are being conducted. Phase 1 investigates additional factors that may predict the onset of juvenile ...

Corrected Measurement of the Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness by Optic Disc Configuration With the Cirrus HD OCT

Finding the localized retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) defect and measuring the RNFL thickness are two main issues for early glaucoma detection. A recently developed imaging device, the Cirrus HD OCT, offers more detailed informations about retina architecture including optic nerve head. To calculate the RNFL thickness, the software of ...

Efficacy of Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer (RNFL) / Retinal Thickness Ratio by Cirrus OCT Utilizing Spectral -Domain Technology as a Diagnostic Predictor of Glaucoma

Glaucoma is presumed to be an axonal disease which starts at the lamina cribrosa. This assumption has led to the monitoring of the retinal nerve fiber layer thickness for the diagnosis and monitoring of progression of glaucoma. However, varying disc size, myopia and tilted discs affect the thickness of the ...

Advanced Surface Ablation (ASA) vs Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK)

Excimer laser vision correction (LVC) is a widely used procedure to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism by reshaping the surface of the eye (cornea). Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) and Advanced Surface Ablation (ASA) and are techniques currently used to prepare the cornea for Excimer LVC. This review is intended ...

Phase N/A

Compare Anterior Chamber Biometry in Healthy and Post-LASIK Patients

Accommodation is an action that enables projections of both distant and near objects to be brought into clear focus on the retina through changing of diopteric power of crystalline lens. Although the exact mechanism of accommodation remains inconclusive, most authors agree that contraction of ciliary muscle plays a pivotal role.1, ...

Phase N/A

Shanghai High Myopia Study

High myopic cataract (HMC) has become a major high-risky type of cataract in China, which accounts for nearly 30% of cataract in recent years. Compared to age-related cataract, HMC is characterized with earlier onset, severer lens opacities, higher incidence of vitreoretinopathy and postoperative complications compared to age-related cataract(ARC). The main ...

Phase N/A

An Evaluation of LASIK and PRK Surgery in Physicians

The participants will have a comprehensive eye examination once they express an interest in the study. This includes a slit lamp examination of the front of the eye and a dilated fundoscopic examination of the back of the eye. If there is any pathology noted that would exclude the participant ...

Phase N/A

Measurements of Corneal Biomechanical Properties Using a Dynamic Scheimpflug Analyzer for Young Healthy Adults in South Korea

The human cornea is affected by the magnitude and velocity of both internal and external forces because the cornea has both static and dynamic resistance components. Considering these natures of the human cornea, many investigators have tried to demonstrate corneal biomechanical properties to understand these characteristics of the cornea. Corneal ...

Phase N/A

Genomewide Screening of Pathological Myopia

High myopia (pathological myopia) is caused by excessive axial elongation that primarily involves the ora-equatorial area and the posterior pole. Peripheral fundus changes and posterior staphyloma formation are ophthalmoscopic evidences of this process. Pathological myopia often accompanied by glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and retinal detachment, leading to blindness when the ...

Phase N/A

Aberration-Free Refraction Correction

The quality of an image on the retina is determined by the optical system of the eyeball, which is dominated by the refractive contribution of the optically powerful cornea. The large difference in refractive index between air and the cornea is the basis for anterior corneal refractive surgery such as ...
