Factors that influence the incidence of myopia

The authors evaluated the Rotterdam, The Netherlands Generation R dataset to establish the risk factors associated with change to axial eye length and incidence of myopia in children from age 6 to 9 yrs.

The association between digital screen time and myopia

For many children using digital devices is a normal part of their everyday lives and they will use computers and hand-held devices at school and at home. This systematic review collates this published research to illuminate current understanding on the association between the time children spend on digital devices and incidence, prevalence or progression of myopia.

The association between near work activities and myopia in children

The visual demand of concentrating on close-up tasks like reading and studying are thought to be a driving force for increased myopia in children. To better understand this relationship the authors consolidated data from several studies to quantify the effect of near work activities on myopia in children and discover any association there may be between them.

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.
