  1. INTRODUCTION: This study aims to understand off-axis refraction during accommodation and to identify whether the relative hyperopia generally observed in myopic eyes changes with accommodation. METHOD: Twenty bilateral myopes (18 to 33 years)…
  2. PURPOSE: To evaluate refractive error, axial length, and relative peripheral refractive error before, during the year of, and after the onset of myopia in children who became myopic compared with emmetropes. METHODS: Subjects were 605 children 6 to…
  3. PURPOSE: Given the prominence of central vision in humans, it has been assumed that visual signals from the fovea dominate emmetropization. The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of peripheral vision on emmetropization. METHODS:…
  4. Peripheral refractive error degrades the quality of retinal images and has been hypothesized to be a stimulus for the development of refractive error. The purpose of this study was to investigate the changes in refractive error across the horizontal…
  5. Myopia is a significant public health problem and its prevalence may be increasing over time. The main treatment options of single vision spectacle lenses, contact lenses, and refractive surgery do not slow the accompanying eye growth or retard the…
  6. PURPOSE: Because of the prominence of central vision in primates, it has generally been assumed that signals from the fovea dominate refractive development. To test this assumption, the authors determined whether an intact fovea was essential for…
  7. PURPOSE: The present study investigated the relationship between parental refractive error and myopia progression in their offspring and the interaction between parental ametropia and the effects of wearing progressive-addition (PALs) or…
  8. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to investigate the comparative clinical performance of two hyper Dk contact lenses: a silicone hydrogel lens (Focus Night & Day, Ciba Vision) and a rigid lens (Z-alpha, Menicon Co. Ltd.) when worn for up to 30…
  9. The physical contrast of simple images such as sinusoidal gratings or a single patch of light on a uniform background is well defined and agrees with the perceived contrast, but this is not so for complex images. Most definitions assign a single…
  10. PURPOSE: To identify whether parental history of myopia and/or parent-reported children's visual activity levels can predict juvenile-onset myopia. METHODS: Survey-based data from Orinda Longitudinal Study of Myopia subjects from 1989 to 2001 were…
  11. PURPOSE: The purpose of the Correction of Myopia Evaluation Trial (COMET) was to evaluate the effect of progressive addition lenses (PALs) compared with single vision lenses (SVLs) on the progression of juvenile-onset myopia. METHODS: COMET enrolled…
