Stratification of CCT in Hypermetropic
It will be necessary to investigate as to whether there are differences in the anatomical indexes studied between emmetropic, myopic and hypermetropic
eyes, and between populations of different ethnic origin" the researcher concluded.
Conclusion: The frequency of myopia is approximately three times that of hypermetropia, myopic astigmatism is five times that of hypermetropic
astigmatism, while mixed astigmatism is present in only 6.
There was a significant difference between the groups in refractive values at 3 months postoperatively, with the phacovitrectomy group showing a more hypermetropic
shift compared to the control group.
Parents should be advised to choose a favourite activity to encourage their child to wear their spectacles, corresponding to when they will have benefit eg, reading a book for a hypermetropic
child or watching television for a myope, and when the child has an adult's undivided attention.
Although full cycloplegia is achieved with atropine, the cycloplegic refractive results obtained with cyclopentolate are comparable in "normals", (23) high hypermetropic
children (24,25) and also those children with strabismus.
29%) subjects had hypermetropic
correction and 95 (20.
38) In three of the six cases paroxetine is identified in geriatric patients (aged between 70-91), 2 of the cases are used in young patients who are hypermetropic
and plateau iris configuration is identified in one patient.
Compared to the neonate distribution, there is a shift in the mean value towards lower hypermetropia, but by far the most dramatic change is the loss of refractive errors of both myopic and hypermetropic
types, so that very few children of school age have clinically significant refractive errors.
When the vertical meridian of astigmatism is more myopic than the horizontal, it is called with the rule astigmatism and in against the rule, it is more hypermetropic
If the patient is undiagnosed ie, in a state of hyperglycaemia, he/ she can become more myopic (50) or more hyperopia (51-53) Under intensive glycaemic control, the refractive error generally shifts in a hypermetropic
direction, (54-56) with a larger degree of initial myopia showing larger shifts in refractive error.
8) The question is that, is there any relation between age and sex of a myopic and Hypermetropic
patient to have higher IOP which could have given a clue for higher risk of Glaucoma?
