Abstract Details

Purpose:

The aim of our research was to determine the eye exercises influence on visual acuity.

Setting:

Lithuanian University of Health Sciences

Methods:

Fifteen children from 9 to 18 years  were investigated at the momentary research. All the patients had myopia or pseudo myopia. All children were assigned for eye exercises for two weeks duration (10 days). Non-corrected and the best-corrected visual acuity (measured in decimals from 0.1 to 1.0) was evaluated using Landolt’s rings (C optotypes) by Snellen test types at a 5 meter distance from the chart. Autorefractometry, non-corrected and the best-corrected visual acuity were evaluated before and after eye exercises.

Results:

A total of 15 children (30 eyes) were examined; 11 (73.3%) were boys and 4 (26.7%) were girls. Visual acuity before eye exercises was 0.34±0.31, after exercises was 0.39±0.36. Correction before eye exercises was -1.98±1.84, after exercises was -1.98±1.98 (p>0.05). Visual acuity difference before and after eye exercises was 0.05± 0.14. Correction difference before and after eye exercises was 00.0± 0.36 (p>0.05).

Conclusions:

Visual acuity increased after eye exercises.
