August 2020 myopia research update

Race as a predictor of myopia progression in paediatric patients; Scleral cross-linking using Rose Bengal green light; Blink study results; Vision with multifocal CL in myopes and presbyopes; Influence of CN multifocal CL on VA in young myopes and presbyopes; Effect of high add OK lens designs on corneal hysteresis and ocular aberrations.

Evaluation of simulated orthokeratology in a soft contact lens for myopia control

Soft contact lenses designed to simulate the change in refraction optical pro-file from orthokeratology (OK) fail to slow axial eye elongation or change to refrac-tion over 1-year of wear in children, leading to suggestion that OK’s propensity to slow myopia progression may not be due to changes OK makes to optical profile.

Understanding spherical aberration

Understanding spherical aberration is important in view of mechanisms of myopia development, progression and control. This blog explains positive and negative spherical aberration, how they relate to contact lens corrections and more.

Understanding Ocular Wavefront aberrations

Understanding ocular wavefront aberrations are important in view of mechanisms of myopia development, progression and control. This blog helps clarify this concept to help you understand research.
