of refraction with aging is also correlated with nuclear opalescence and increased lens thickness.
3) The literature contains varied results, but myopic shift has been most commonly reported after phacovitrectomy.
8) Differing results are reported in the literature, but the most common refractive outcome of phacovitrectomy is myopic shift.
Pizzarello (5) observed that all women who complained of visual changes were found to have experienced a myopic shift
from pre-pregnancy levels and that by postpartum all subjects returned to near pre-pregnancy levels of myopia.
eyes with decreased corneal curvature show myopic shift
6,7) Later experiments showed that exposure to anomalous patterned stimuli through corneal opacification, (8) and the use of pattern vision attenuating occluders, (9) induced a myopic shift
INTRODUCTION: Several drugs are known to cause angle closure and induce acute myopic shift
Although most studies find a myopic shift
in refractive error prior to diagnosis with a hyperopic shift during treatment for diabetes, the literature has not been consistent (see Table 1).
Key Words: Topiramate, myopic shift
, bilateral secondary angle-closure glaucoma, duloxetine
The same average myopic shift
noted in PLK2 patients should be considered for post-LASIK patients as well.
Furthermore, myopic shifts
in refraction can occur across the lifespan, although more common in the first two decades than in older persons.
Sudden reduction in distance VA with regular myopic shifts
