Synopsis

Myopia is the technical term for short sightedness. It means that images of distant objects are focused in front of the retina when accommodation is relaxed and thus distance vision is blurred. Many texts describe the measurement of refractive error in myopia and how to correct it by conventional means, but very few discuss the condition in detail. Our book will discuss:prevalencemyopia and near visual activitystructure of myopic eyesanimal studiesaccommodation and myopiainnervationvergence and myopiatreatment - behavioural approaches, control, spectacles, contact lenses, including OrthoK, laser surgery.* Unique text explores the relationship between near vision and myopia written by an authoritative group of experts sharing their views in this long-awaited unique compilation of data. * The book will appeal to all who are perplexed by the issue of myopia and nearwork either in terms of appreciating the diversity of research findings or by the management of questions commonly asked in the consulting room. * Essential for all students and practitioners whether they are optometrists or ophthalmologists requiring a thorough understanding of myopia
