PURPOSE The assets of this report are a thorough description of new clinical findings, namely the combination of ptosis, extraocular motility disorder and myopia, in consequence of prolonged survival in classic infantile-onset Pompe disease through enzyme therapy. DESIGN Single case description. RESULTS This manuscript describes a combination of ptosis,(More)
PURPOSE To determine which color vision test is most appropriate for the identification of cone disorders. METHODS In a clinic-based study, four commonly used color vision tests were compared between patients with cone dystrophy (n = 37), controls with normal visual acuity (n = 35), and controls with low vision (n = 39) and legal blindness (n = 11). Mean(More)
The aim of the study was to investigate the relationship between serum 25(OH)D levels and axial length (AL) and myopia in 6-year-old children. A total of 2666 children aged 6 years participating in the birth-cohort study Generation R underwent a stepwise eye examination. First, presenting visual acuity (VA) and AL were performed. Second, automated(More)
AIM To determine the amount of myopic shift in children after cataract surgery with intraocular lens (IOL) implantation and to evaluate success in achieving the target refraction. METHODS The children were assigned into three groups depending on age at time of surgery: Group A, 0-1 years old; Group B, 1-7 years old; Group C, 7-18 years old. Multiple(More)
BACKGROUND Reoperations are frequently necessary in strabismus surgery. The goal of this study was to analyze human-error related factors that introduce variability in the results of strabismus surgery in a systematic fashion. METHODS We identified the primary factors that influence the outcome of strabismus surgery. For each of the human-error related(More)
PurposeRandomized controlled trials have shown the efficacy of atropine for progressive myopia, and this treatment has become the preferred pattern for this condition in Taiwan. This study explores the effectiveness of atropine 0.5% treatment for progressive high myopia and adherence to therapy in a non-Asian country.MethodsAn effectiveness study was(More)
Sir Stewart Duke-Elder was probably the most influential ophthalmologist of the 20th century. One of his visionary pieces of work was his writing on myopia in the second edition of The Practice of Refraction, published in 1935. Many of his insights are now, 80 years later, supported by scientific proof. In terms of prognosis of myopia, he stated that this(More)
Previous studies have identified many genetic loci for refractive error and myopia. We aimed to investigate the effect of these loci on ocular biometry as a function of age in children, adolescents, and adults. The study population consisted of three age groups identified from the international CREAM consortium: 5,490 individuals aged <10 years; 5,000 aged(More)
- Myopia is the eye disorder with the most rapid increase in prevalence worldwide. It develops in childhood, with a peak incidence between the ages of 13 to 15 years. - Especially high myopia, i.e. a refractive error of -6 diopters or more, increases the risk of permanent visual impairment during adulthood due to structural abnormalities of the retina and(More)
PURPOSE High myopia (≤-6 D) usually has its onset before 10 years of age and can lead to blinding complications later in life. We examined whether differences in myopia prevalences in socioeconomic risk groups could be explained by differences in lifestyle factors. METHODS A total of 5711 six-year-old children participating in the prospective(More)
