    • Binocular Adaptation to +2 D Lenses in Myopic and Emmetropic Children: 

      Sreenivasan, Vidhyapriya; Irving, Elizabeth; Bobier, William (Wolters Kluwer, 2009-06)
      Purpose. To compare vergence adaptation to +2 D addition lenses in myopic and emmetropic children and to evaluate the influence of the accommodative-vergence crosslink (AC/A ratio) on this adaptation. Methods. Nine ...
    • Binocular adaptation to near addition lenses in emmetropic adults 

      Sreenivasan, Vidhyapriya; Irving, Elizabeth; Bobier, William (Elsevier, 2008-05)
      Near addition lenses are prescribed to pre-presbyopic individuals for treatment of binocular motor problems such as convergence excess and to control the progression of myopia. To date, no investigation has looked at the ...
    • Can current models of accommodation and vergence predict accommodative behavior in myopic children? 

      Sreenivasan, Vidhyapriya; Irving, Elizabeth; Bobier, William (Elsevier, 2014-08)
      Investigations into the progression of myopia in children have long considered the role of accommodation as a cause and solution. Myopic children show high levels of accommodative adaptation, coupled with accommodative lag ...
    • Effect of heterophoria type and myopia on accommodative and vergence responses during sustained near activity in children 

      Sreenivasan, Vidhyapriya; Irving, Elizabeth; Bobier, William (Elsevier, 2012-03-15)
      The influence of phoria-type and myopia on changes to vergence and accommodation during prolonged near-task was examined in 53 children. Participants were classified into phoria and refractive categories based on near ...
    • Effect of near adds on the variability of accommodative response in myopic children 

      Sreenivasan, Vidhyapriya; Irving, Elizabeth; Bobier, William (Wiley, 2011-03)
      Purpose: Higher variability of accommodative response (VAR) has been reported in myopes and speculated to be a possible risk factor for the progression of myopia. We investigated whether near adds of +2D and −2D were capable ...
    • Inhibition of Defocus-Induced Myopia in Chickens 

      Woods, Jill; Guthrie, Sarah E.; Keir, Nancy; Dillehay, Sally; Tyson, Mark; Griffin, Richard; Choh, Vivian Cheng-Pei; Fonn, Desmond; Jones, Lyndon W.; Irving, Elizabeth (Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, 2013-04-12)
      Purpose.: To determine the effect of wearing a lens with a unique peripheral optical design on the development and progression of defocus-induced myopia in newly hatched chickens.Methods.: Eighty-five newly hatched chickens ...
