Increased hyperopia with ageing based on cycloplegic
refractions in adults: the Tehran Eye Study.
* Pain control is achieved with cycloplegics
(11) like cyclopentolate 0.5% to 1% or a one-day course of systemic opioids.
As expected, Homatropine has got stronger cycloplegic
effect on ACD and LT as compared to Tropicamide, which is reflected statistically on both the parameters.
This pseudomyopia was diagnosed if the patient reported blur at distance that could be corrected with minus lenses when the patient had no previous history of such a prescription and, furthermore, if a cycloplegic
refraction elicited either emmetropia, low hyperopia, or significantly less myopia .
refraction measurements were taken before study commencement, every three months and at the end of the study.
The patient was treated with topical corticosteroids, cycloplegic
drugs, doxycycline (200 mg/d), hydroxychloroquine (200 mg 3x/d), and sulfamethoxazole/ trimethoprim (1,600 mg and 320 mg 3x/d) (2).
After 30 minutes, cycloplegic
retinoscopy and dilated fundus examination were performed.
It also includes cycloplegic
refraction on behalf of the hospital eye service--if you receive a request for a cycloplegic
refraction of a child then this can be claimed as an enhanced SEE.
refraction was done with Retinoscopy after one week of surgery and aphakik glasses (aspheric) were given to each eye who had bilateral or unilateral cataract surgery.
Oral prednisone 1 mg/kg, topical prednisolone acetate (hourly) and cycloplegic
drops (three times daily) were started for both eyes.
Visual acuity was normal and was no significant refractive error on cycloplegic
refraction (OD -0.50 - 0.50 x 10[degrees], OE -0.25 - 0.50 x 170[degrees]) for her age.
Although the application of cycloplegic
agents could stabilize the pupil size and accommodation status, this manner is not welcomed in clinical practice due to the side effects of the cycloplegic
agents (e.g., transient photophobia and blurred near vision).
The topical instillation of cycloplegic
, 1% Atropine sulphate solution (ophthalmic) helped to dilate pupil and evade occulocardiac reflex.
Preoperative examination included best-corrected visual acuity, cycloplegic
refraction, slit-lamp examination, and fundus examination with 78 D, and checking of extraocular movements.
