PURPOSE: To determine the relationship between accommodative lag and rate of myopia progression when Ghanaian myopic school children are either undercorrected or fully corrected with single vision lenses.

METHODS: A 2-year single masked randomized control trial was conducted using 150 Ghanaian myopic children aged 10 to 15 years with mean baseline myopia of -1.98 ± 0.50D. The children were randomly assigned to wear either a full correction (n = 75) or +0.50D undercorrection (UC) (n = 75) ...

Objective: Ergonomically designed workstations have direct bearing on the comfort and safety of office computer users. Tremendous usage of computers in most offices of emerging economies have however, not seen accompanying applications of ergonomics in the design of computer workstations despite the numerous benefits. Injuries and discomforts therefore have higher propensity to occur since most offices formally designed for paperbased work now accommodate computer workstations, without ...

The transparent vitreous body, which occupies about 80% of the eye's volume, is laden with numerous enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidants that could protect the eye from oxidative stress and disease. Aging is associated with degeneration of vitreous structure as well as a reduction in its antioxidant capacity. A growing body of evidence suggests these age-related changes may be the precursor of numerous oxidative stress-induced vitreo-retinopathies, including vision degrading ...

PURPOSE: To describe the surgical technique of internal drainage of subretinal fluid as an adjunct to chandelier-assisted scleral buckling for the repair of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment.

METHODS: The technique of internal drainage with a sharp needle or cannula through a trocar is described and shown in a Supplemental Digital Content 1 (see Video,

RESULTS: Three patients (3 eyes) underwent scleral buckling for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment repair. ...
