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.

Race as a predictor of myopia progression in paediatric patients

Myopia has multi-factorial causes with both nature and nurture contributing. In this research the authors used a retrospective cohort study to examine any differences in progression rate with different ethnicities and greater understand who may be at increased risk of myopic progression.

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.

Axial length and reduced macular sensitivity before changes in acuity

This study showed that adult high myopes with myopic macular degeneration (MMD) show reduced macular sensitivity as measured by microperimetry. That’s not unexpected; but the microperimetry changes occurred before BCVA changes in mild MMD – read more here.

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.
