Can we really distinguish ‘non-responders’ to myopia control interventions?
Alex Nixon, OD; Wednesday, October 11, 8:30 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. CT; Room 356 – 357
A sub-analysis of the Low-concentration Atropine for Myopia Progression (LAMP) study, a robustly designed, placebo- controlled trial with children aged 4 to 12 years, was conducted to calculate the efficacy for each intervention by subject age and overall myopia progression. The results showed that, within each intervention group, faster progressors achieved a similar absolute reduction in axial elongation and myopia progression as the slower progressors, and that use of the terms ‘responders’ and ‘non-responders’ is inappropriate.
