  1. 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.\n\nMETHODS: Subjects were 605 children 6…
  2. 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:…
  3. 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)…
  4. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to examine the optical and visual impact of tear break-up. METHODS: Optical quality of the eye was assessed during periods of nonblinking by quantifying vessel contrast in the fundus image and by monitoring the…
  5. PURPOSE: To evaluate the relation between ocular shape and refractive error in children. METHODS: Ocular shape was assessed by measuring relative peripheral refractive error (the difference between the spherical equivalent cycloplegic autorefraction…
  6. 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…
  7. PURPOSE: To examine tear film, contact lens, medical, and patient-related factors associated with self-reported contact lens-related dry eye. METHODS: Four hundred fifteen contact lens wearers were recruited and enrolled in this phase of a larger…
  8. PURPOSE: Myopia is a common ocular disorder, and progression of myopia in children is of increasing concern. Modern overnight orthokeratology (ortho-k) is effective for myopic reduction and has been claimed to be effective in slowing the progression…
  9. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to measure refraction across the horizontal central visual field in orthokeratology patients before and during treatment. METHODS: Refractions were measured out to 34 degrees eccentricity in both temporal and…
  10. 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…
  11. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to characterize the central and peripheral refraction across the horizontal meridian of the visual field before and after myopic corneal refractive therapy (CRT) with contact lenses. METHODS: Twenty-eight right…
  12. To assess the effect of bifocal soft contact lenses on the accommodative errors (lags) of young adults. Recent studies suggest that bifocal soft contact lenses are an effective myopia control treatment although the underlying mechanism is not…
