Refraction of LIGHT effected by the media of the EYE.
A refractive error in which rays of light entering the EYE parallel to the optic axis are brought to a focus in front of the RETINA when accommodation (ACCOMMODATION, OCULAR) is relaxed. This results from an overly curved CORNEA or from the eyeball being too long from front to back. It is also called nearsightedness.
Deviations from the average or standard indices of refraction of the eye through its dioptric or refractive apparatus.
A refractive error in which rays of light entering the eye parallel to the optic axis are brought to a focus behind the retina, as a result of the eyeball being too short from front to back. It is also called farsightedness because the near point is more distant than it is in emmetropia with an equal amplitude of accommodation. (Dorland, 27th ed)
Unequal curvature of the refractive surfaces of the eye. Thus a point source of light cannot be brought to a point focus on the retina but is spread over a more or less diffuse area. This results from the radius of curvature in one plane being longer or shorter than the radius at right angles to it. (Dorland, 27th ed)

Latrunculin-A causes mydriasis and cycloplegia in the cynomolgus monkey. (1/981)

PURPOSE: To determine the effect of latrunculin (LAT)-A, which binds to G-actin and disassembles actin filaments, on the pupil, accommodation, and isolated ciliary muscle (CM) contraction in monkeys. METHODS: Pupil diameter (vernier calipers) and refraction (coincidence refractometry) were measured every 15 minutes from 0.75 to 3.5 hours after topical LAT-A 42 microg (approximately 10 microM in the anterior chamber [AC]). Refraction was measured every 5 minutes from 0.5 to 1.5 hours after intracameral injection of 10 microl of 50 microM LAT-A (approximately 5 microM in AC), with intramuscular infusion of 1.5 mg/kg pilocarpine HCl (PILO) during the first 15 minutes of measurements. Pupil diameter was measured at 1 and 2 hours, and refraction was measured every 5 minutes from 1 to 2 hours, after intravitreal injection of 20 microl of 1.25 mM LAT-A (approximately 10 microM in vitreous), with intramuscular infusion of 1.5 mg/kg PILO during the first 15 minutes of measurements (all after topical 2.5% phenylephrine), and contractile response of isolated CM strips, obtained <1 hour postmortem and mounted in a perfusion apparatus, to 10 microM PILO +/- LAT-A was measured at various concentrations. RESULTS: Topical LAT-A of 42 microg dilated the pupil without affecting refraction. Intracameral LAT-A of 5 microM inhibited miotic and accommodative responses to intramuscular PILO. Intravitreal LAT-A of 10 microM had no effect on accommodative or miotic responses to intramuscular PILO. LAT-A dose-dependently relaxed the PILO-contracted CM by up to 50% at 3 microM in both the longitudinal and circular vectors. CONCLUSIONS: In monkeys, LAT-A causes mydriasis and cycloplegia, perhaps related to its known ability to disrupt the actin microfilament network and consequently to affect cell contractility and adhesion. Effects of LAT-A on the iris and CM may have significant physiological and clinical implications.  (+info)

Reflective meniscometry: a non-invasive method to measure tear meniscus curvature. (2/981)

AIMS: To devise a method to measure tear meniscus curvature by a non-invasive specular technique. METHODS: A photographic system was devised. The system consisted of a camera and an illuminated target with a series of black and white stripes oriented parallel to the axis of the lower tear meniscus. The target was mounted on a flash gun close to the objective of a Brown macrocamera and calibrated using a graduated series of glass capillaries of known diameter, ground down to expose the inner wall. It was then applied to normal human eyes (n = 45) to measure the tear meniscus curvature. A video system was also assessed which provided qualitative online information about the tear meniscus. RESULTS: Using the photographic system, measured values for capillary radii were in excellent agreement with theoretical calculations (r2 = 0.996, p < 0.0001). The radii of curvature of lower tear menisci in normal human subjects (mean 0.365 (SD 0.153) mm, range 0.128-0.736; n = 45) were similar to those reported in the literature. Both systems demonstrated variations in meniscus shape. The video system provided stable images of human menisci over prolonged periods of time and promises to be useful for the analysis of dynamic changes in meniscus volume. CONCLUSIONS: Reflective meniscometry is a non-invasive technique providing quantitative information about tear meniscus shape and volume and of potential value in the study of ocular surface disease.  (+info)

Animals were anaesthetised and examined (with some exceptions) at 4, 6, 7, 8, 10, 15, 24 and 39 weeks of age. Cycloplegic retinoscopy showed that hyperopia early in life rapidly diminished. Refraction corrected for the artefact of retinoscopy stabilised by 8 weeks of age, but at a slightly myopic value, rather than at emmetropia. The ocular components continued to change throughout the period studied. Corneal radius, measured by photokeratometry, increased slightly during development. Anterior segment depth and vitreous chamber depth (VCD), measured by A-scan ultrasonography, increased throughout development while lens thickness initially increased and then decreased. Data from the eyes of these normal animals were compared with that from the contralateral eyes of animals which received short periods of monocular deprivation early in life (Troilo, D., & Judge S.J. (1993). Ocular development and visual deprivation myopia in the common marmoset (Callithrix jacchus jacchus). Vision Research, 33, 1311-24); eyes which viewed through no lens or a plano lens (Graham, B. & Judge, S.J. (1999)). The effects of spectacle wear in infancy on eye growth and refractive error in the marmoset (Callithrix jacchus). Vision Research, 39, 189-206), and eyes of normal animals in another colony. There were no significant differences between the first two groups and the normal animals in our colony while age-matched animals from the other colony were slightly but significantly less myopic than our animals.  (+info)

Biometric, optical and physical changes in the isolated human crystalline lens with age in relation to presbyopia. (4/981)

The biometric, optical and physical properties of 19 pairs of isolated human eye-bank lenses ranging in age from 5 to 96 years were compared. Lens focal length and spherical aberration were measured using a scanning laser apparatus, lens thickness and the lens surface curvatures were measured by digitizing the lens profiles and equivalent refractive indices were calculated for each lens using this data. The second lens from each donor was used to measure resistance to physical deformation by providing a compressive force to the lens. The lens capsule was then removed from each lens and each measurement was repeated to ascertain what role the capsule plays in determining these optical and physical characteristics. Age dependent changes in lens focal length, lens surface curvatures and lens resistance to physical deformation are described. Isolated lens focal length was found to be significantly linearly correlated with both the anterior and posterior surface curvatures. No age dependent change in equivalent refractive index of the isolated lens was found. Although decapsulating human lenses causes similar changes in focal length to that which we have shown to occur when human lenses are mechanically stretched into an unaccommodated state, the effects are due to nonsystematic changes in lens curvatures. These studies reinforce the conclusion that lens hardening must be considered as an important factor in the development of presbyopia, that age changes in the human lens are not limited to the loss of accommodation that characterizes presbyopia but that the lens optical and physical properties change substantially with age in a complex manner.  (+info)

The growing eye: an autofocus system that works on very poor images. (5/981)

It is unknown which retinal image features are analyzed to control axial eye growth and refractive development. On the other hand, identification of these features is fundamental for the understanding of visually acquired refractive errors. Cyclopleged chicks were individually kept in the center of a drum with only one viewing distance possible. Defocusing spectacle lenses were used to stimulate the retina with defined defocus of similar magnitude but different sign. If spatial frequency content and contrast were the only cues analyzed by the retina, all chicks should have become myopic. However, compensatory eye growth was still always in the right direction. The most likely cues for emmetropization, spatial frequency content and image contrast, do therefore not correlate with the elongation of the eye. Rather, the sign of defocus was extracted even from very poor images.  (+info)

The refractive development of untreated eyes of rhesus monkeys varies according to the treatment received by their fellow eyes. (6/981)

To determine the extent to which the visual experience of one eye may influence the refractive development of its fellow eye, we analyzed the data of untreated (UT) eyes of monkeys that received different types of unilateral pattern deprivation. Subjects were 15 juvenile rhesus monkeys, with five monkeys in each of three treatment groups: aphakic eyes with optical correction (AC), aphakic eyes with no correction (ANC), and eyes that were occluded with an opaque contact lens (OC). Under general anaesthesia, refractive error (D) was determined by cycloplegic retinoscopy and axial length (mm) was determined with A-scan ultrasonography. For measurements of refractive error of the UT eyes, there was a significant main effect of groups according to the treatment of the fellow eyes, F(2, 12) = 6.6. While UT eyes paired with AC fellow eyes (mean = +4.2 D) were significantly more hyperopic than the eyes of age-matched normal monkeys (mean = +2.4 D), t(25), = 2.5, UT eyes paired with OC fellow eyes (mean = -0.5 D) were significantly more myopic than the eyes of normal monkeys, t(25) = -9. UT eyes paired with ANC fellow eyes (mean = +1.9 D) were not significantly different from normal eyes. For measurements of axial length there was also a significant main effect of groups, F(2, 12) = 6.9. While UT eyes paired with AC fellow eyes (mean = 16.9 mm) were significantly shorter than the eyes of age-matched normal monkeys (mean = 17.5 mm), t(25) = 2.3, UT eyes paired with OC fellow eyes (mean = 18.1 mm) were significantly longer than the eyes of normal monkeys, t(25) = 2.3. UT eyes paired with ANC fellow eyes (mean = 17.5 mm) were not significantly different from the eyes of normal monkeys. The measurements of axial length and of refractive error of the UT eyes were also significantly correlated with one another, probably indicating that the differences in refractive error were due to differences in axial length, r = -0.8. The present data reveal that despite normal visual experience, UT eyes can have their refractive development altered, systematically, simply as a function of the type of pattern deprivation received by their fellow eyes. These data add to the growing evidence that there is an interocular mechanism that is active during emmetropization. As a consequence, future models of eye growth will need to consider both: (1) the direct influence of visual input on the growing eye; as well as (2) the indirect influence coming from the fellow eye.  (+info)

Changes in corneal wavefront aberrations with aging. (7/981)

PURPOSE: To investigate whether corneal wavefront aberrations vary with aging. METHODS: One hundred two eyes of 102 normal subjects were evaluated with videokeratography. The data were decomposed using Taylor and Zernike polynomials to calculate the monochromatic aberrations of the cornea for both small (3-mm) and large (7-mm) pupils. RESULTS: For a 3-mm pupil, the amount of total aberrations (Spearman rank correlation coefficient r(s) = 0.145; P = 0.103) and spherical-like aberrations (r(s) = -0.068; P = 0.448) did not change with aging, whereas comalike aberrations exhibited a weak but statistically significant correlation with age (r(s) = 0.256; P = 0.004). For a 7-mm pupil, total aberrations (r(s) = 0.552; P < 0.001) and comalike aberrations (r(s) = 0.561; P < 0.001) significantly increased with aging, but spherical-like aberrations showed no age-related changes (r(s) = 0.124; P = 0.166). Simulated pupillary dilation from 3 mm to 7 mm caused a 38.0+/-28.5-fold increase in the total aberrations, and the extent of increases significantly correlated with age (r(s) = 0.354; P < 0.001). Pupillary dilation influenced the comalike aberrations more in the older subjects than in the younger subjects (r(s) = 0.243; P = 0.006), but such age dependence was not found for spherical-like aberrations (r(s) = 0.141; P = 0.115). CONCLUSIONS: Comalike aberrations of the cornea correlate with age, implying that the corneas become less symmetrical along with aging. Spherical-like aberrations do not vary significantly with aging. Pupillary dilation markedly increases wavefront aberrations, and those effects are more prominent in older subjects than in younger subjects.  (+info)

Spherical and aspherical photorefractive keratectomy and laser in-situ keratomileusis for moderate to high myopia: two prospective, randomized clinical trials. Summit technology PRK-LASIK study group. (8/981)

OBJECTIVE: Determine the outcomes of single-zone photorefractive keratectomy (SZPRK), aspherical photorefractive keratectomy (ASPRK), and laser in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK) for the correction of myopia between -6 and -12 diopters. DESIGN: Two simultaneous prospective, randomized, multi-center clinical trials. PARTICIPANTS: 286 first-treated eyes of 286 patients enrolled in one of two studies. In Study I, 134 eyes were randomized to SZPRK (58 eyes) or ASPRK (76 eyes). In Study II, 152 eyes were randomized to ASPRK (76 eyes) or to LASIK (76 eyes). INTERVENTION: All eyes received spherical one-pass excimer laser ablation as part of PRK or LASIK performed with the Summit Technologies Apex laser under an investigational device exemption, with attempted corrections between -6 and -12 diopters. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Data on uncorrected and best spectacle-corrected visual acuity, predictability and stability of refraction, and complications were analyzed. Follow-up was 12 months. RESULTS: At 1 month postoperatively, more eyes in the LASIK group achieved 20/20 and 20/25 or better uncorrected visual acuity than PRK-treated eyes; at the 20/25 or better level, the difference was significant for LASIK (29/76 eyes, 38%) over SZPRK (10/58 eyes, 17%) (P = .0064). At all subsequent postoperative intervals, no difference was seen between treatment groups. Similarly, best corrected visual acuities were better for LASIK than all PRK eyes at 1 month postoperatively, and LASIK was better than SZPRK at 3 months follow-up (e.g., for 20/20 or better at 1 month, LASIK 50/76 eyes (66%) versus SZPRK 24/57 eyes (42%), P = .0066). PRK eyes had a mean loss of BCVA through 6 months, while LASIK eyes had a slight gain of mean BCVA through month 6; at 12 months, both ASPRK groups but not SZPRK continued to have a small mean loss of BCVA (e.g., compared to preoperative, mean BCVA at 12 months for SZPRK was + 0.3, LASIK was +.21, ASPRK I was -0.11, and ASPRK II -0.31 (SZPRK versus ASPRK II, P = .0116). Predictability was better for PRK than LASIK at all follow-up intervals (e.g., for manifest refraction spherical equivalent +/- 1.0 diopters at 6 months, ASPRK I 42/62 eyes (68%) versus LASIK 29/72 eyes (40%), P = .0014%). Stability was slightly but insignificantly less in the LASIK eyes compared to PRK eyes. All visual outcome measures were better for eyes with preoperative myopia between -6 and -8.9 D compared with eyes with myopia between -9 and -12 D. No consistent differences in refractive outcomes or postoperative corneal haze were seen between aspherical and single-zone ablations; haze diminished over 12 months and was judged to be vision-impairing in only one ASPRK eye. Microkeratome and flap complications occurred in 4 eyes, resulting in delay of completion of the procedure in 3 eyes but not causing long-term impairment. CONCLUSIONS: Improvement in uncorrected visual acuity and return of best corrected visual acuity was more rapid for LASIK than PRK, but efficacy outcomes in the longer term through 12 months were similar for all treatment groups. LASIK eyes tended toward undercorrection with the nomogram employed in this study compared to PRK, but the scatter was similar, suggesting little difference between these procedures for most patients by 6 months and thereafter. No consistent advantage was demonstrated between aspherical and single-zone ablation patterns. Predictability was much better for all procedures for corrections of -6 to -8.9 D compared with -9 to -12 D. Sporadic loss of best corrected vision in the PRK eyes not found in the LASIK eyes and other measures of visual function require further study.  (+info)

In another study, Atchison et al. 30 measured peripheral refraction out to 35° eccentricity in horizontal and vertical meridians of emmetropic and myopic subjects up to −12 D. Relative hyperopic and myopic shifts were reported in horizontal and vertical meridians, respectively, in the myopic group. Moreover, J 180 was found to increase negatively in horizontal, and positively in vertical meridians, relative to the fovea. In addition, Atchison et al. showed that the differences in peripheral refraction between myopic and emmetropic eyes are small when measured along the vertical meridian out to 30° eccentricity compared with those measured along the horizontal meridian. Figure 8 illustrates the comparison of our results with those in previous peripheral refraction studies on the horizontal and vertical meridians. Our data illustrate a relative hyperopic shift which was similar for all measured meridians for the myopic group, and a relatively constant refractive profile for emmetropic eyes ...

An apparatus for determining the objective refraction of a patients eye includes a transparent window and a wavefront measurement device that determines aberrations in a return beam from the patients eye after the beam passes through a corrective test lens in the apparatus. The wavefront measurement device outputs an instant display representative of the quality of vision afforded the patient through the test lens. The display can be a representation of a Snellen chart, convoluted with the optical characteristics of the patients vision, an overall quality of vision scale or the optical contrast function, all based on the wavefront measurements of the patients eye. The examiner may use the display information to conduct a refraction examination and other vision tests without the subjective response from the patient.
Illumination was from three different types of LED light tubes (Shanghai Rui Gao Xiang Light and Electronic Corporation, Shanghai, China): blue (λmax = 430 nm, half-bandwidth = 20 nm), green (λmax = 530 nm, half-bandwidth = 30 nm), and white (color temperature = 5000 K). The blue and green LEDs were chosen based on the spectral sensitivity of the S-cone system (429 nm) and the M-cone system (529 nm) of the guinea pig (Jacobs & Deegan, 1994). Data from the manufacturer indicated that the white light had no bias toward the blue or green and perfectly covered the output of the two monochromatic sources. The illumination conditions and housing were designed as previously described (Liu et al., 2011). Four to six LED tubes were placed on each interior surface (including the ceiling and floor) of specially designed wooden crates with white paint on the inner walls to ensure homogenous illumination. Guinea pigs were reared in cages (dimensions: 80.0 × 50.0 × 40.0 cm, mesh size: 1.5 × 5.0 cm2) that ...

The diagram on the right shows an example of refraction in water waves. Ripples travel from the left and pass over a shallower region inclined at an angle to the wavefront. The waves travel slower in the more shallow water, so the wavelength decreases and the wave bends at the boundary. The dotted line represents the normal to the boundary. The dashed line represents the original direction of the waves. This phenomenon explains why waves on a shoreline tend to strike the shore close to a perpendicular angle. As the waves travel from deep water into shallower water near the shore, they are refracted from their original direction of travel to an angle more normal to the shoreline.[3] Refraction is also responsible for rainbows and for the splitting of white light into a rainbow-spectrum as it passes through a glass prism. Glass has a higher refractive index than air. When a beam of white light passes from air into a material having an index of refraction that varies with frequency, a phenomenon ...
Glycerol is a clear, colorless, and sweet-tasting, viscous liquid also frequently referred to as glycerin or glycerine. It is also less commonly known as 1,2,3-propanetriol, 1,2,3-trihydroxypropane, or glycol alcohol. Glycerol belongs to the alcohol family in organic compounds and contains three hydroxyl groups (-OH). The chemical formula of glycerol is C3H8O3 and the molecular formula is HOCH2CHOHCH2OH. Glycerol is a common substance found in soap, cosmetics, creams, and foods as well as being used in chemical studies and experiments.. Refraction is the change in angle of light when moving from one medium into another. The index of refraction, n, can be determined by c/v where c is the approximate speed of light, 3 × 108 m/s, and v is the phase velocity, or the speed inside the medium. However, the refractive index is also defined as a constant that is the ratio of the sine of the angle of incidence to the sine of the angle of refraction. This application is used in Snells Law, given as: n1 ...

Precise. In the traditional refraction procedure, values are rounded to 0.25 D at each stage and inaccuracies accumulate. In the precise Digital Infinite Refraction™ procedure, all the refraction is conducted with 0.01 D increments and the final value is rounded to the nearest 0.25 D, with four options for the optometrist to choose from, providing a more reliable result for your patient.. Patient comfort. The smooth power changes and a wider field of vision make refraction very comfortable for the patient. The procedure is shorter and there is no fatigue. All along the refraction procedure, variation steps are adjusted to patient sensitivity making differences easier to perceive and, as a consequence, responses are easier to give. At the end of the test, Vision-R 800 phoropter offers patients the fascinating experience of comparing refractions in simulated real-life conditions.. Easier for the Optometrist. The practitioner reaches the final refraction more quickly than with traditional methods ...
When adjusting the lens, both your refractive power and any astigmatism that may occur can be corrected: If the refractive power of the lens needs to be increased, the physician irradiates the central part of the Light Adjustable Lens with UV light. This will make the lens thicker in the center. The refractive power increases.. If the refractive power of the lens is too high, the edges of the Light Adjustable Lens (LAL) are irradiated instead of the middle. The center of the lens flattens and the refractive power is reduced. Astigmatism can also be corrected in the same way. Undesirable changes in the lens caused by the UV light from your environment must be excluded. To avoid this risk, you will be given UV protection goggles, which will be worn from the operation until the final fixation of the lens. After adjusting the lens, the fixation of your lens takes place. For this we also use the LDD device. The lens can not change anymore. Enjoy now the look you want to measure.. ...
Refraction. Computer artwork showing the refraction of light beams through a biconcave lens. Light changes direction, or is refracted, when it meets a different transparent medium such as a lens. A biconcave lens causes light beams to diverge. It is used to correct myopia (short- sightedness), a condition in which light is focused before it reaches the retina. - Stock Image A205/0081
A process is disclosed for fabricating an improved antireflection coating on a substrate. A layer of dielectric material having a first thickness and a first index of refraction are formed overlying a substrate. The dielectric material is implanted with hydrogen to form an implanted surface region having a thickness less than the thickness of the entire layer of dielectric material. The hydrogen reduces the index of refraction of the implanted region to a value less than the index of refraction of the initial layer. The structure overlying the substrate thus includes two integral layers having different indices of refraction with the lower index of refraction, as desired, at the surface of the dielectric material. The process can be extended by further implantation to provide an increased number of distinct layers of differing index or to provide a continuum of regions of varying index of refraction.

The mean prediction error of the refractive outcome obtained in our study was 1.03 D (SD, 0.69 D) for SRK II group and 1.14 D (SD, 1.19 D) in Pediatric IOL Calculator group. This showed both groups ended more myopic than anticipated. However, there was no statistically significant different in the mean prediction error in both groups. Even though, the SRK II group had a lower prediction error of 0.11 D compared to the Pediatric IOL Calculator, we could not prove that SRK II is better than Pediatric IOL Calculator or vice versa. Our results showed that for the overall group, the prediction error is satisfactory and is comparable with errors demonstrated in adult group [21].. In our study, we further divided and analyzed the prediction error according to age group, axial lengths and keratometry. We divided the groups according to the age at time of surgery to less than 3 years old, and equal or older than 3 years old; axial length of less than 22 mm, and equal or more than 22 mm; and keratometry ...
Purpose : To investigate the axial length and corneal radius of curvature (AL/CR) ratio in high versus low myopes and its relationship with myopia progression. Methods : Baseline AL/CR ratio of the right eyes of 310 high myopes (aged 7 to 16; myopia ≤ -6.00D) from the ZOC-BHVI High Myopia Registry (2012- 2013, Guangzhou, China) and 733 low myopes (aged 6 to 16; myopia -0.50D to -3.50D) from Vision CRC studies (2010-2014, Guangzhou, China) were calculated. Exclusion criteria were ocular disease, surgery or previous treatment for myopia. All participants underwent measurement of axial lengths (AL), corneal radii of curvature (CR) and cycloplegic objective refraction. Low myopes were followed 6 monthly for 12 months. Parental myopia was documented. General linear model was used to test the relationship between AL/CR ratio and spherical equivalent (SE) after adjusting for parental myopia, gender, age, and high versus low myopia. The progression in AL/CR ratio with progression in SE was assessed in ...
A patients risk of myopia onset can be influenced by various things, including parental myopia, female gender, longer axial length, reduced outdoor time, increased near work time and accommodative insufficiency. Since cycloplegia isnt readily available for most medical practitioners outside of eyecare offices, assessment of spherical equivalent (SE) refraction-commonly used in myopia studies-has limited applicability for other care providers. A recent cohort study observed the performance of SE obtained using non-cycloplegic methods as a predictor of myopia, which would be more accessible across the board for patient assessment. Researchers included 1,022 children aged six to 10 years from two elementary schools in Wenzhou, China. The participants were evaluated at baseline and annual follow-up appointments for three years. The doctors performed non-cycloplegic refraction, ocular biometry and accommodation measurements. A total of 830 of the students were non-myopic at baseline. Two years into ...

PURPOSE. To examine the association between the anthropometric measurements of height, weight, body mass index (BMI) and refraction and other ocular parameters in Singapore Chinese children. METHODS. In a cross-sectional study of 1449 Chinese school-children, aged 7 to 9 years, from three Singapore schools, height and weight were measured according to standard protocol, and BMI was calculated. Refractive error and corneal curvature measures were determined by autorefraction in eyes under cycloplegia. Axial length, vitreous chamber depth, lens thickness, and anterior chamber depth were measured using A-scan biometry ultrasonography. RESULTS. In comparison with the children with height in the first quartile for a given age and gender, the eyeball length in children in the fourth quartile was 0.46 mm longer, the vitreous chamber depth 0.46 mm deeper, the corneal radius of curvature 0.10 mm greater (i.e., flatter), refraction more negative by 0.47 D (-0.76 D versus -0.29 D), and axial ...
We present parsimonious refraction interferometry and tomography where a densely populated refraction data set can be obtained from two reciprocal and several infill shot gathers. The assumptions are that the refraction arrivals are head waves, and a pair of reciprocal shot gathers and several infill shot gathers are recorded over the line of interest. Refraction traveltimes from these shot gathers are picked and spawned into O(N2) virtual refraction traveltimes generated by N virtual sources, where N is the number of geophones in the 2D survey. The virtual traveltimes can be inverted to give the velocity tomogram. This enormous increase in the number of traveltime picks and associated rays, compared to the many fewer traveltimes from the reciprocal and infill shot gathers, allows for increased model resolution and a better condition number with the system of normal equations. A significant benefit is that the parsimonious survey and the associated traveltime picking is far less time consuming ...
Mean spherical equivalent refraction treated was -6.56±2.74D (range: -2.25 to -13.00D). Median age was 33 years (range: 19 to 66 years). After SMILE, central corneal sensation dropped from 54-mm preoperatively to 32-mm (day one), rising to 40-mm (1 week), 44-mm (1 month), 49-mm (3 months), 54-mm (6 months), and 55-mm (12 months). Corneal sensation had reached baseline by 1, 3, 6, and 12 months in 62%, 76%, 89%, and 90% of eyes respectively. Twenty LASIK studies were identified; central corneal sensation dropped from 56-mm preoperatively to 9-mm (day one), rising to 15-mm (1 week), 22-mm (1 month), 33-mm (3 months), 44-mm (6 months), and 50-mm (12 months). Across the LASIK studies, mean spherical equivalent refraction treated was -4.30D and mean age was 34.2 years ...
PURPOSE: Proper refractive eye growth depends on several features of the visual image and requisite retinal pathways. In this study, we determined the contribution of rod pathways to normal refractive development and form deprivation (FD) myopia by testing Gnat1-/- mice, which lack functional rods due to a mutation in rod transducin-α. METHODS: Refractive development was measured in Gnat1-/- (n = 30-36) and wild-type (WT) mice (n = 5-9) from 4 to 12 weeks of age. FD was induced monocularly from 4 weeks of age using head-mounted diffuser goggles (Gnat1-/-, n = 9-10; WT, n = 7-8). Refractive state and ocular biometry were obtained weekly using a photorefractor, 1310 nm optical coherence tomography, and partial coherence interferometry. We measured retinal dopamine and its metabolite, DOPAC, using HPLC. RESULTS: During normal development, the refractions of WT mice started at 5.36 ± 0.68 diopters (D) and became more hyperopic before plateauing at 7.78 ± 0.64 D. In contrast, refractions in ...
Advanced computerized optical diagnostic equipment is revolutionizing eye care in the 21st century. Refraction is no exception. Traditionally, the refraction of the eye was given with spherical and cylindrical lens powers assumed to be valid across the entire pupil. However, using wavefront sensing, adaptive optics, and new treatment technologies, higher-order aberrations can be measured across the pupil and then modified or eliminated. Research has clearly shown that there are many applications involving these aberrations with diagnosis, treatment, and management of disorders, such as myopia, corneal disorders, presbyopia, cataract, and intraocular lens application and the dynamic changes in refractive state and retinal image quality produced by tear film thinning and accommodation. There are also many related questions that need to be answered regarding the natural stimulus for focusing, the patients perception of the aberrations and their correction, and vision simulation with computational ...
The spherical equivalent before surgery was −4.52 ± 1.96 diopters, falling to −0.22 ± 0.48 diopters after the procedure. Mean uncorrected distance visual acuity post-surgery (UDCVA) was −0.03 ± 0.11 LogMAR. 90.4% achieved UDCVA of at least 0.1 LogMAR (0.8 decimal). 88% showed no refraction one month after surgery and 96.5% had postoperative refraction of ≤0.50 D. Mean asphericity was −0.26 ± 0.19 before surgery and 0.19 ± 0.29 after surgery. Statistically significant differences were found for steep K, flat K, mean K, asphericity, spherical aberration and vertical coma (p < 0.005). On the other hand, no significant differences were found in the Root Mean Square (RMS) for higher order aberrations, horizontal coma or trefoil. Postoperative asphericity correlated strongly with 4th order spherical aberration and vertical coma. Six eyes developed intraoperative complications (confusion between the anterior and posterior planes with stromal damage, loss of suction during the creation of ...
The AOAs stance on these companies prompts the question: Does online refraction actually threaten optometrys model? Consider the lesson of Google Maps.11 Google managed to topple the navigation device market (remember your Tom Tom GPS?) on four main selling points: price, quality, convenience and personalization. Improving on all four of these aspects disrupted the personal navigation device market forever.10 It may be worth discussing with patients whether online refraction companies can beat optometry in any of these selling points. Price. No optometrist would provide a refraction separate from a comprehensive eye exam, explains John Rumpakis, OD, CEO of Practice Resource Management, Inc. However, since thats what these companies are doing, a hypothetical price-by-price comparison may be an appropriate point to discuss with patients. Opternative offers a glasses or contacts prescription for $40 ($60 for both). Although optometry offers a comprehensive exam at an average Medicare ...

A dioptre (uk), or diopter (us), is a unit of measurement of the optical power of a lens or curved mirror, which is equal to the reciprocal of the focal length measured in metres (that is, 1/metres). It is thus a unit of reciprocal length. For example, a 3-dioptre lens brings parallel rays of light to focus at ​1⁄3 metre. A flat window has an optical power of zero dioptres, and does not converge or diverge light. Dioptres are also sometimes used for other reciprocals of distance, particularly radii of curvature and the vergence of optical beams. The usage was proposed by French ophthalmologist Ferdinand Monoyer in 1872, based on earlier use of the term dioptrice by Johannes Kepler. The main benefit of using optical power rather than focal length is that the lensmakers equation has the object distance, image distance, and focal length all as reciprocals. A further benefit is that when relatively thin lenses are placed close together their powers approximately add. Thus, a thin 2-dioptre lens ...
Ray-tracing data are usually given as angles of arrival and departure, transmitter and receiver coordinates, ray length and delay, received power level, and polarity. Usually, these values are given in raw data with some resolution that covers the area of interest where the simulation is performed. There are two main drawbacks of such approach: first, a huge amount of storage capacity is typically needed and second, although the area of interest is covered by a certain resolution, it is nearly impossible to interpolate between sample points and new time, and memory consuming simulations are necessary in order to increase the resolution of the simulations. This paper addresses the two mentioned drawbacks of ray tracing, suggesting a procedure based on the concept of ray entities both to enable continuous interpolation of ray-tracing data and reduce the memory needed for storing data. Ray entity is a set of rays that all undergo the same series of propagation phenomena (direct ray, diffraction, ...
The prevalence rate of myopia is rising rapidly in several Asian countries. A prevalence survey conducted in 1995 of 11178 school children in Taiwan were 12 percent for six year old and 84 percent for teenagers 16 o 18 years. Among them, twenty percent were high myopes. While in the United States and Europe the prevalence rate in older adults is 20% to 50%. The rate of progression of myopia is highest in young children, and the average age of stabilization of myopia is approximately 16 years.The onset of myopia may occur at a relatively young age, leading to higher risks of high myopia (myopia at least 6.0 diopters ) in adulthood. High myopia is associated with potentially blinding complications. Therefore, prevention of myopia progression is important in Taiwan, especially in young children.. There is some evidence that atropine eyedrops retard myopia progression in three randomized clinical trials. It is believed that atropine act on muscarinic receptor located in the sclera and through some ...
Topography & Autorefraction are done at the same time. Topography is a topographical map of your cornea. You may have this done if you have corneal trouble such as Keratoconus or if you have cataracts. Autorefraction provides an objective measurement of your refractive error (the strength glasses you wear). It is particularly important to know your refraction prior and after cataract surgery to calculate the most suitable artificial lens. Currently Medicare does not offer a refund for this vital test.. ...
Case report: A 63 year old female patient consult our clinic for a cataract surgery with IOL implantation. In 1993 she underwent a PRK for her myopia. Her original refraction was 8.0/-0.75/40° at the right eye and -6.75/-0.5/10° at the left eye. As PRK was performed at an other clinic and it was not possible to get any information about keratometry, corneal topography or axial lengt of her eyes before PRK. At her first visit at our eyeclinic her refraction was -3.0/-0.75/18°=20/40 right and -2.75/-0.5/96°=30/50 left. Target refraction after cataract surgery was -2.5 right and -2.5 left. Preoperativly a biometry by IOL-Master® and a corneal topography by C-Scan® were performed. IOL calculation was done with the Oculix-program®. On the first postoperativ day the patient reached a visual acuity of -2.0=40/50 ...

Purpose: To investigate whether myopia is becoming more common across Europe and explore whether increasing education levels, an important environmental risk factor for myopia, might explain any temporal trend. Design: Meta-analysis of population-based, cross-sectional studies from the European Eye Epidemiology (E3 ) Consortium. Participants: The E3 Consortium is a collaborative network of epidemiological studies of common eye diseases in adults across Europe. Refractive data were available for 61 946 participants from 15 population-based studies performed between 1990 and 2013; participants had a range of median ages from 44 to 78 years. Methods: Noncycloplegic refraction, year of birth, and highest educational level achieved were obtained for all participants. Myopia was defined as a mean spherical equivalent 0.75 diopters. A random-effects metaanalysis of age-specific myopia prevalence was performed, with sequential analyses stratified by year of birth and highest level of educational ...
The differences that prevail between the cornea that creates the astigmatism and the refractive cylinder that corrects it optically are prevalent and signiftcant, and can play a role in adverse refractive and qualitative outcomes. Addressing these differences during the planning of the surgery provides a uniform paradigm for all astigmatism procedures. Including corneal in addition to refractive values in the treatment plan reduces the amount of overall astigmatism in the eye and provides advantages in outcomes for any corneal refractive astigmatism surgery ...

Eye practices are valuable in rectifying an assortment of vision issues. These eye practice methods can redress vision conditions, for example, partial blindness and farsightedness. Eye activities can likewise remedy another vision condition called Astigmatism. Astigmatism is characterized as an eye condition whereby your vision is foggy at any separation. A portion of the reasons for astigmatism incorporates sporadically formed ebb and flow has the cornea or eye focal point. You can read at cloud chasers for other Astigmatism causes incorporate eye damage, and complications related with eye surgery.. High glucose levels and issues related with diabetes are likewise contributing components to this vision condition as to diabetes. Such an issue can prompt the development of an abnormally formed eye focal point. This is related with a condition called Lenticular Astigmatism. The most ideal approach to rectify this issue is to bring glucose levels once more into the ordinary range by and by. ...

The most important subjects of his inquiries are enumerated by Forbes under the following five heads : 1. The laws of polarization by reflection and refraction, and other quantitative laws of phenomena; 2. The discovery of the polarizing structure induced by heat and pressure; 3. The discovery of crystals with two axes of double refraction, and many of the laws of their phenomena, including the connection of optical structure and crystalline forms; 4. The laws of metallic reflection; 5, Experiments on the absorption of light. In this line of investigation the prime importance belongs to the discovery (1) of the connection between the refractive index and the polarizing angle, (2) of biaxal crystals, and (3) of the production of double refraction by irregular heating. These discoveries were promptly acknowledged by those best qualified to estimate their value. So early as the year 1807 the degree of LL.D. was conferred upon Brewster by Marischal College, Aberdeen; in 1815 he was made a member of ...

  • They are indicated for use in cycloplegic refraction (to paralyze the ciliary muscle in order to determine the true refractive error of the eye) and the treatment of uveitis . (
  • Refractive error was determined by cycloplegic subjective refraction. (
  • Statistically significant between groups differences were found for cycloplegic refraction (p = 0.02 for both eyes) and keratometry (p = 0.001 for both eyes). (
  • Cycloplegic Refraction - Refraction is the procedure by which the natural optical error is characterized and quantified. (
  • Cycloplegic refraction refers to refraction done with a cycloplegic agent to dilate the pupil. (
  • Ideally, a child with myopia should undergo cycloplegic refraction at the initial presentation and then at least every 12 months. (
  • However, if cycloplegic refraction is not possible, a careful subjective refraction must suffice. (
  • 1,2 Therefore, tropicamide 1% is worth considering for cycloplegic refraction as it reduces the duration of glare and near symptoms compared to other options. (
  • If conducting cycloplegic refraction, inform patients that the eye drops may sting for a few seconds before instilling them into the eye. (
  • Use the cycloplegic refraction results from retinoscopy or autorefraction as the starting point and then refine to achieve the best possible VA. If there is a large difference between the cycloplegia objective and subjective refraction, recheck your results. (
  • in addition, the anterior ocular segment and the fundus were examined, as was the apparent and cycloplegic refraction. (
  • Association between ocular dominance and refraction. (
  • PURPOSE: To investigate the association between ocular dominance and refraction. (
  • Any disruptive factor that prevents the eyes from seeing equally, fusing their images, or working together (coordination), whether it be an imbalance of refractive errors between the eyes (anisometropia), a lens opacity obstructing normal vision (cataract), or an ocular misalignment (strabismus), can potentially cause loss of vision (amblyopia). (

  • Other ocular problems included vernal keratoconjunctivitis, vitamin A deficiency, microbial conjunctivitis, strabismus and corneal opacity. (
  • Down syndrome (DS) is the most common human chromosomal anomaly, and is reportedly associated with incidences of refractive error, amblyopia, strabismus, nystagmus, cataract, and other ocular disorders. (
  • 4,5 ) Timely diagnosis and appropriate treatment of children with strabismus and/or amblyopia is likely to reduce the prevalence of persistent amblyopia and ocular misalignment in adults. (
  • The axial length, anterior chamber depth, and keratometry were measured using 2 types of partial coherence interferometries (Galilei G6(R) and IOL Master(R)). The SRK/T formula was used to calculate IOL power and the predictive error which subtracts predictive refraction from postoperative refraction was compared between the ocular biometry devices . (

  • Shin-Nippon SRW-5000) and ocular biometry (IOLMaster, Carl Ziess). (
  • The purpose of this study is to determine the average values of human ocular biometry and to correlate these values with visual function. (
  • Refractive state and ocular biometry were obtained weekly using a photorefractor, 1310 nm optical coherence tomography, and partial coherence interferometry. (
  • Additionally, longitudinal measurement of ocular biometry revealed a significant increase in crystalline lens thickness and a corresponding decrease in anterior chamber depth after 2.5 years (n=51). (
  • The change in ocular biometry per dioptre of accommodation exerted remained invariant after 2.5 years. (
  • Hyperopia was defined as a right spherical equivalent refraction (SER) of ≥+2.00 dioptres (D), myopia as ≤-0.50D and astigmatism as a cylindrical error of ≥1.00D.Results: The mean SER was similar at age 6-7 yrs (p=0.9), however, at 12-13 yrs, children in Northern Ireland had a significantly less hyperopic mean SER (+0.66D) than children in Sydney (+0.83D, p=0.008). (
  • Refraction is essentially the same as the retinoscopy other than it tests your eyes using an instrument called a phoropter for hyperopia (farsightedness), myopia (nearsightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia. (
  • 1 - 6 Peripheral refraction was first implicated as a risk factor for the onset of myopia by Hoogerheide et al. (
  • Experimental designs that concurrently compare myopia and hyperopia induction enable identification of genes with expression profiles that are discriminatory for different ocular growth trajectories. (

  • Many eye conditions, such as corneal ulcer, glaucoma, ocular trauma or eye surgery in a young child may lead to stimulus deprivation and, if suspected, this should be specifically excluded on examination. (
  • 153 women) with no corneal disease underwent an exhaustive ocular examination. (
  • OSAS has major consequences on the ocular level since it is associated with a higher frequency of optic neuropathies, such as glaucoma and nonarteritic ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION), both with functional severe prognosis. (

  • ocular refraction the refraction of light produced by the media of the normal eye and resulting in the focusing of images upon the retina. (
  • There has also been much study of how the retina affects eye growth and refraction. (
  • More specifically, positive lenses, which bring the focus in front of the retina for a relaxed emmetropic eye (imposed myopic defocus), result in slowed ocular growth while negative lenses, which place the focus behind the retina in a relaxed emmetropic eye (imposed hyperopic defocus), result in accelerated ocular growth. (

  • The threshold for consistent responses to positive lens defocus in tree shrew was between +4 and +6 D. The results will enable targeted investigation of the efficacy of positive lens defocus in inhibiting myopic ocular growth. (
  • In the most frequently studied model of ocular growth and refractive development, the chick, it has been demonstrated that the rate of ocular growth can be manipulated to bring about compensation for a wide range of lens-induced defocus (−10 D to +15 D), predominantly brought about by altered axial ocular dimensions. (
  • The primary aim of this thesis was to investigate the in vivo ocular morphological and contractile changes occurring within the accommodative apparatus prior to the onset of presbyopia, with particular reference to ciliary muscle changes with age and the origin of a myopic shift in refraction during incipient presbyopia.

  • where F 1 and F 2 are the powers of the lenses or surfaces comprising the system, d is the distance between the two and n the index of refraction of the intervening medium. (
  • Induced defocus from optical lenses has been demonstrated, in a variety of vertebrate species, to result in altered ocular growth in an attempt by the eye to attain functional emmetropia. (
  • There is significant reduction in the standard deviation, owing to a decrease in variability of refraction (which results in the leptokurtic shift in distribution) (Figure 4). (
  • Reduction in standard deviation due to decreased variability in refraction between 1 and 3 years of age (leptokurtic shift). (
  • 1.- Prevalence of ocular abnormalities in adults with Down syndrome in Hong Kong. (
