Digital eye strain in kids

Digital eye strain is becoming more common in children and teenagers. The symptoms of asthenopia can be due to dry eye, binocular vision dysfunction and glare sensitivity – learn more about each of these, as well as guidelines to manage the risks.

What role do accommodation and binocular vision issues play in eyestrain symptoms?

While 80% of pre-presbyopic adults with Digital Eye Strain symptoms preferred reading with low-addition lenses, the improvement in reading speed was generally small and did not appear to correlate with specific accommodation or binocular vision dysfunctions. In the 8% who showed a significant improvement in reading rate of at least 15%, a majority showed reduced accommodation amplitude.

Is there a dose response in myopia control?

A dose-response is where an increasing amount of a medication or intervention is correlated with a better clinical outcome. When it comes to myopia control, we investigate the evidence for a dose-response with spectacle, contact lens, atropine and outdoor time interventions.

What does extended depth of focus mean in contact lens designs?

Extended depth of focus (EDOF) designs in soft contact lenses are employed for presbyopia correction as well as myopia control. This article explores differences between contact lens designs which could be termed ‘multifocal’, and how this could factor into clinical outcomes.

How does NaturalVue Multifocal 1 Day perform long-term for myopia?

This retrospective cohort analysis showed that NaturalVue Multifocal 1 Day contact lens wear appears to result in a mean refractive myopia progression of less than 0.25D per year, based on available data. Some limited axial length data was also presented.

Retinal pathology is common in younger people with high myopia

This hospital-based study of high myopes aged 12 to 47 years found that myopia-related retinal pathologies were common, especially with more than 8D of myopia, greater than 26.5mm axial length and longer durations of myopia. Age and family history were not associated with retinal pathology – highlighting the need for close retinal health monitoring in high myopes of all ages.

The Topcon MYAH – Q&A with Mario Teufl

In our Q&A interview format, we talk to Mario Teufl, optometrist from Austria, who explains how he uses the Topcon MYAH in his practice for myopia management – from axial length to topography to dry eye and more.
