Visual Function after Correction of Distance Refractive Error with Ready-made and Custom Spectacles: A Randomized Clinical Trial
Brady CJ et al. – Ready–made spectacles produce large but slightly smaller improvements in visual function and quality of life and similar satisfaction with vision at 1–month follow–up when compared with custom spectacles (CS). Ready–made spectacles are suitable for the majority of individuals with uncorrected refractive error in the study population, although those with high degrees of astigmatism may benefit from a trial of CS. This study provides further evidence for the use of ready–made spectacles in settings where CS are unavailable or unaffordable, or refractive services are inaccessible to those in need.
