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.

Accommodation training in multifocal contact lens wear

This study showed that multifocal contact lens wear in young adult myopes increases accomodative lag, and utilized auditory biofeedback training to improve it. The results and implications are discussed here.
