Congratulations to Grace Walther for being chosen as the 2023 International Myopia Institute Best Poster awardee for her AAO 2023 paper “Optical effects of decentering myopia control contact lenses”!
Dr. Pete Kollbaum and Martin Rickert had a fun collaboration with some colleagues from the University of Houston. A retrospective analysis of real-world clinical data found no difference in the annualised axial length (AL) growth between peripheral defocus contact lenses and orthokeratology. Further, the AL progression from this clinical setting was consistent with those reported… Read more »
Our article about Essilor Stellest and Hoya Visioncare MiYOSMART spectacle lenses for myopia control has been published in OPO: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/opo.13098 Key points: – Distance image quality in the two myopia control spectacle lenses was reduced by the combined effects of defocus blur from the lenslets and diffraction blur from the fragmented distance optic. – When… Read more »
Congratulations to Dr. Pete Kollbaum and Dr. Nitya Murthy for being awarded a research grant from the International Society for Contact Lens Research (ISCLR)! When asked about their project, the investigators held their protocol pretty close to the chest, but we could surmise that they are looking at the optics of myopia control lenses. Stay… Read more »
The prevalence of myopia and use of electronic displays by children has grown rapidly in recent years. We found that children viewing electronic displays, however, experience hyperopic defocus levels similar to those previously reported for other stimuli. Please find our research article in the current issue of OVS. The article can be assessed… Read more »
