In this article, we compare two refractive surgery techniques to correct myopia: wavefront-guided LASIK (WFG-LASIK) and small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE). Discover the results of two independent studies that demonstrate why LASIK is the preferred option for those looking to get rid of glasses or contact lenses.
The results of a recent clinical trial confirm that atropine is an effective medication for slowing down myopia progression in children aged 6 to 12.
New studies show conclusive results allowing an effective approach to limit the evolution of myopia in children.
Refractive surgery aims to compensate all refraction errors to be independant of any correction, glasses or contact lenses.
Myopia (or shortsightedness), astigmatism, hyperopia and presbyopia are refraction anomalies: it means that the image perceived is blurred as it is not focused on the retina.
Here is a list of most frequent medical conditions in ophthalmology.
