365), a positive correlation between cycloplegic refraction and SFCT (r=0.
In this study, we observed differences between high myopia and control eyes with respect to choroidal thickness, AL, cycloplegic refraction, SE, and BCVA.
It is important to perform cycloplegic refraction to ensure that decompensation is not due to uncorrected hyperopia.
This would then be followed by a cycloplegic refraction and a fundus and media examination either by an optometrist or ophthalmologist.
17) Several studies have reported both ocular and systemic side effects (especially using atropine) in those children who have had a cycloplegic refraction, in addition to expected mydriasis and cycloplegia, as detailed later.
37) In adult patients undergoing refractive surgery, a study showed no significant difference in cycloplegic refraction between tropicamide 1% and cyclopentolate 1%.
A cycloplegic refraction
at a six-year-old child's first eye examination yielded the clinical information shown in Image B.
Key advice was offered on the risk factors to consider for heterotropia and amblyopia (eg, maternal drug use, genetics/family history, forceps injury and prematurity), the importance of crowding effects on VA measurements, the usefulness of the 20 Base Out prism test for detecting amblyopia, indications for cycloplegic refraction
, and indications for occlusion therapy.
and, if significantly hypermetropic, full plus prescription for constant wear are required as soon as possible.
on this child revealed a prescription of RE: +2.
All patients underwent preoperative ophthalmic clinical examination that included manifest and cycloplegic refractions
, UCVA, CDVA, slit lamp examination and measurement of RMS of HOAs with aberrometer (Wavelight allergo analyzer version 1073).
We provide: pre and post cataract assessments, IOP refinement, MECS, which is similar to a PEARS scheme, and a paediatric service which provides cycloplegic refractions
in the community allowing greater communication between optometrists and orthoptists.
