My ophthalmic elective: focusing on myopia in Taiwan

The authors describe their elective experience and delve further into high myopia, an emerging ophthalmic disease that is increasingly recognised in and outside Asia. The medical school elective programme presents an opportunity for students to conduct learning in their chosen...

Atropine treatment for myopia in western countries – rationale

This preliminary study sets out the rationale, methodology and participant baseline characteristics for the Western Australia Atropine for the Treatment of Myopia (WA-ATOM). It is a double masked randomised placebo-controlled trial. This study is designed to be combined with the...

Effect of low-dose atropine on myopia progression

A randomised study to evaluate the effects of 0.01% and 0.02% atropine eye drops (one drop once nightly to both eyes) on myopic progression, pupil diameter and accommodative amplitude in myopic patients. Four hundred myopic children were divided into three...

Association between COVID-19 restrictions and accelerated myopia progression

A retrospective case review aimed to evaluate the association between home confinement and progression of myopia in Argentina during 2020. Data was collected using an online survey of ophthalmologists throughout Argentina. The inclusion criteria included being five to 18-years-old, found...

Myopia rate of change from 5-20 years

Data was collected from the 2008-12 KNHANES survey and the study included 7695 of 9351 subjects with refractive data. The mean age was 11.8 years (5-20 range) with 48.2% female. Mean spherical equivalent was -1.82 ±2.23D. For five-year-olds, the mean...

Myopia-related strabismus – heavy eye syndrome

Introduction Myopia can be associated with any type of strabismus, but high myopia has increased frequency of esotropia and vertical heterotropia. The incidence and severity of the strabismus increases with the degree of myopia and age of the patient. Classification...

Cytokine levels in vitreous fluid in patients with pathological myopia

Pathological myopia (PM) is a leading cause of irreversible visual impairment worldwide, and efforts are dedicated to the study of its underlying mechanisms. Axial extension of the eyeball is regulated via a cascade of biochemical molecules that are initiated in...

Longitudinal changes in axial length in high myopia

This is a prospective, longitudinal, observational single centre study between May 2011 and September 2018, to determine the changes in the axial length (AL) longitudinally in patients with high myopia without other conformational abnormalities. Patients were divided into two groups:...

LASEK with mitomycin C to correct myopia in thin corneas

This study evaluated the long-term outcomes of laser-assisted subepithelial keratomileusis (LASEK) with intraoperative use of mitomycin C (MMC) performed on thin corneas for the correction of myopia. MMC modulates the corneal wound healing response in surface healing, thus reducing the...

LASEK vs. epi-LASIK for myopia: meta-analysis

Previous studies have produced inconsistent conclusions on the relative benefits between LASEK vs. Epi-LASIK. LASEK uses 20% alcohol to separate an epithelial flap from the Bowman membrane. After ablation, the epithelial flap is repositioned onto the cornea. Epi-LASIK creates the...
