Full optical correction after cycloplegia in headache.
However, there are a few patients who arrive without having the drops administered or those where full cycloplegia has not taken place.
The measurements were done before anti-glaucoma treatment in glaucoma cases and also before cycloplegia. Chisquare, Kolmogorov-Smirnov, and independent samples t-tests were used for statistical analysis.
Wang, from Sun Yat-sen University in Guangzhou, China, and colleagues performed an observational cohort study to examine the incidence of myopia and high myopia based on refraction without cycloplegia among 4,741 children from 19 primary schools and 22 junior high schools.
And, the latent hyperopia, detected only by cycloplegia, are caused by the tonic accommodation of the lens; this excessive tonic state of accommodation is caused by the intent of the visual system to compensate the hyperopia.
An automatic refractometer (Topcon RM-A7000; Topcon Co., Tokyo, Japan) was used to obtain a measurement of the refractive error without cycloplegia, and the average value of three repetitions was recorded.
After 3-4 months of age, also assess ocular motility, cycloplegia refraction and accommodation by dynamic retinoscopy.
Complete eye examinations were performed before surgery, including naked eye visual acuity, best-corrected vision, noncontact intraocular pressure (IOP), slit-lamp examination, binocular ophthalmoscope retinal examination, refractive error check before and after cycloplegia, curvature of the cornea, and corneal thickness measurement using an ultrasound and corneal tomography.
As his platelet count was recovering, he was managed conservatively with tapering topical steroids and cycloplegia. The anterior chamber inflammatory reaction as well as the vitritis and retinal haemorrhages resolved over the following month as his platelet count returned to normal.
Cycloplegia was not performed in all children with error, so there could be overall underestimation of refractive errors and we were not able to collect further details regarding factors influencing compliance to spectacle use.
