How outdoor time influences myopia prevention and control

There is general widespread accepted belief that increasing time spent outdoors can be protective against progression of myopia. Xiong et al set out to better understand the research by performing a meta-analysis of 51 clinical trials and longitudinal studies that investigated the relationship between time spent outdoors and the risk of either developing myopia, progression of existing myopia or a myopic shift in refractive error.

Scleral cross-linking using Rose Bengal green light

In myopia development the sclera is at risk of deformation due to increasing axial length progression. This research investigates whether cross-linking treatment could be used to stiffen the sclera as a way to restrict axial eye elongation.

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.
