Abstract

A new treatment for myopia, biofeedback training for control of accommodation, has been proposed and developed over the past decade. Various reports in the literature show marked inconsistencies in the results of such treatment. A double-masked study with experimental and control groups of 15 subjects each was designed to obtain a definitive answer concerning the efficacy of this method. The parameters evaluated were visual acuity, cycloplegic and noncycloplegic retinoscopy, subjective refraction, amplitude of accommodation, and flexibility of accommodation. In all categories no significant difference was found between the control and experimental subjects. The consequences of these findings are discussed as to the benefit of treatments using this method and avenues to explore in future studies.
