招募5-9歲兒童參與控制近視研究計劃 
立即登記:https://bit.ly/3pQfeO7
 
研究內容: 離焦控制近視中相對周邊屈光度數的影響
註冊視光師將對參與者進行屈光度數,視功能等眼睛內外的全面檢查。這個研究會維持1年左右,篩查合格者需進行5次隨訪檢查,檢查地點為香港理工大學眼科視光學硏究診所(A137)。完成研究後,將獲近視控制眼鏡一副。

研究背景
離焦鏡片是一種公認有效的控制近視方法。相對週邊屈光 (RPR)指的是視網膜週邊度數和中心度數之間的差異。兒童佩戴離焦鏡片時的近視控制效果,可能受到的自身RPR的影響。

招募對象
• 5-9歲
•散光≤150度
•沒有眼部或者全身疾病
•雙眼度數差異≤150度
•近視和散光度數總和:75至500度
•未接受過眼部手術或任何近視矯正治療

Purpose: 

To investigate whether vision can be modulated with non-invasive brain stimulation

Eligibility:

Individuals with good vision (with or without glasses) aged 18-45 (inclusive).

* for safety reasons, you may not be suitable if you have implanted devices

General information:

We are recruiting for two studies that are investigating the efficacy of non-invasive brain stimulation on visual perception. Please sign up via the link (bit.ly/422hn6e) if you are interested in participating.

Description: 
The project aims to investigate whether visual functions in adult amblyopic (i.e., lazy eye) patients may improve through optical correction – i.e., wearing appropriate corrective spectacle lenses.

Description:

Recent epidemiological studies have shown that dry eye disease (DED) is 2x more common in Asian eyes and the severity is considerably greater, but the reasons for this are unknown. The project aims to better understand the management of DED in Asian patients and improved diagnosis and treatment for DED in Asian patients and development of methods to analyse tear film samples for common diseases such as glaucoma and diabetes.

Purpose
Investigate how the human eye interacts with structured light exhibiting unique polarization profiles

Why participate?
– Goal is to develop new tools for early detection of certain eye diseases
– You will receive HKD100 per session

Eligibility
– Adults aged 40 or above with normal vision
– Able to attend study at Science Park: 6 sessions each 1 hour long (depending on availability)
