Use of orthoK for myopia treatment

This article provides an updated literature review on the orthkeratology effect on myopia progression considering outcome measures, potential effect modifiers, mechanisms and current prescription concerns. The discussion centres on the extent of slowed myopia progression, mechanisms, safety concerns and comparisons...

High myopia macular thickness

The purpose of this study was to compare macular thickness and volume in 15 highly myopic (>-6D) young children with 11 age-matched controls (-2 to +4D refractive errors) using Stratus third generation OCT. Mean spherical equivalent was -9.42 ±2.81D for...

LASIK for myopia progression

The authors hypothesise that corneal reshaping with refractive surgery could have an effect on myopic progression similar to that of orthokeratology because it results in changes to the central cornea and not to the peripheral cornea. This was a retrospective...

Effect of pregnancy on myopia

The authors present a longitudinal study with a large sample size assessing the association between pregnancy and the onset or progression of myopia. The study participants included the SUN cohort which comprised of young adult female university graduates in Spain....

Reducing myopia progression

This paper reports a literature review to discuss the environmental considerations and treatment options that can prevent the progression of myopia, including time spent outdoors, reduction of near vision activities, spectacle types, contact lens type and pharmacological treatment. The review...

Strabismus in high myopia

The authors report the occurrence of exotropia-hypotropia complex in 15 cases of high myopia. The mean age at presentation was 23.5 years (10-35 years). Only two patients had high bilateral myopia. The mean axial length of the deviating eye was...

Surgical treatment of high myopia

Although several excellent modalities are available for correcting high myopia, the surgical treatment of this condition remains one of the biggest challenges for refractive surgeons; this group of patients is often very dependent on contact lenses. If these patients become...

Myopia-protective against diabetic retinopathy

This meta-analysis evaluates the current evidence of the relationship between myopia and diabetic retinopathy (DR) risk. A systematic search was performed up to April 2015. Three models were used to assess the association between myopia and risk of DR: axial...

Are we short-sighted about myopia?

Worldwide prevalence of myopia has increased rapidly in recent years and has now reached epidemic levels, particularly in South-East Asia where prevalence is around 80% [1-4]. Myopia prevalence is also increasing in the United States and Europe where it is...

Anything new in the control of myopia progression?

This is a review article looking at up to date concepts and evidence in myopia control from current literature and studies. The authors identified that myopia control is best measured in absolute change in axial length as opposed to refraction...

Surgical management of high myopia strabismus

This is a small case series of three patients with unilateral or bilateral high myopia with exotropia and hypotropia. Surgery involved nasal loop myopexy between the medial and superior recti muscles with or without lateral rectus recession and / or...
