The influence of peripheral refractive errors on myopia development
Acta Ophthalmologica, 08/09/2012
Ohlendorf A – Research in animal models of myopia and in humans found strong evidence that the peripheral refraction of the human eye can guide the development of central refractive errors. More studies are needed investigating the efficiency of peripheral refraction management with various kinds of correction methods. Additionally, there is a need for long term studies on central refractive development based on peripheral refraction in the human eye.
