Using the Lensometer: A Reference Guide for Ophthalmology Office Staff
This article has been constructed with the intent that it be used as a quick-reference guide for office staff asked to neutralize a pair of spectacles, and encompasses the process of spectacle neutralization from focusing the eyepiece to recording the result.
Occupational concerns associated with regular use of microscope

  • 2014
The most common occupational concerns of microscope users were musculoskeletal problems of neck and back regions, eye fatigue, aggravation of ametropia, headache, stress due to long working hours and anxiety during or after microscope use.
Ergonomic Consideration of Sight Shifts between the Microscopic and Macroscopic Environments in Microscopic Dentistry for Inexperienced Operators

The proposed adjustment has the potential of improving the quality of work for DOM operators quickly and efficiently by significantly reducing the number of shifts between the environments.


Evaluation of the measurement of refractive error by the PowerRefractor: a remote, continuous and binocular measurement system of oculomotor function
The PowerRefractor is a useful objective screening instrument and because of its remote and rapid measurement of both eyes simultaneously is able to assess the oculomotor response in a variety of unrestricted viewing conditions and patient types.
Measurement of Refractive Errors in Young Myopes Using the COAS Shack-Hartmann Aberrometer
In addition to its capability to measure higher-order aberrations, the COAS can be used as a reliable, accurate autorefractor when measuring myopic refractive errors.
Instrument Myopia—Microscopy*

Physiologically, the instrument myopia appears to be associated with an accommodative equilibrium position and, psychologically, with a sensing of proximity.
Open-loop accommodation in emmetropia and myopia
Open-loop accommodation response positions vary according to the experimental conditions employed during measurement, and no refractive group differences in the open-loop response were apparent.
Prevalence of Myopia in a Group of Hong Kong Microscopists
The myopia prevalence of Hong Kong Chinese microscopists was higher than that of microscopeopists in the United Kingdom, as well as the Hong Kong general population, and it is confirmed that the microscopy task may slightly exacerbate myopia development in Chinese people.

Improvements are suggested to the PowerRefractor measurement technique to standardize its clinical use and to improve accuracy and the estimate of refractive error given by the two instruments was found to be repeatable.

Prevalence of Myopia and Myopic Progression in a Population of Clinical Microscopists

No differences were found in task-related functions between those subjects reporting myopic change in adulthood from those who did not report myopia change, and accuracy of reporting refractive changes was found to be high.
Continuous measurement of accommodation in human factor applications
The development of techniques for high temporal measurements of accommodation and reports on the tolerance of one such recent commercial instrument, the PowerRefractor (PlusOptiX), which was found to be tolerant to eye movements from the optical axis of the instrument.
Oculomotor functions and late‐onset myopia

It is suggested that individuals susceptible of developing myopia from sustained near‐work have a specific oculomotor risk profile that underlie the type of myopia associated with near‐ work.
