. Effect of Eye Exercise on Myopia in Children Aged Between 10-15 Years- A Randomized Clinical Trial

Background- Myopia is the most common refractive error of eye in school going children. There are many treatment option are available to prevent or treat the myopia but not yet well documented in physiotherapy. Objective- To find out the effect of eye exercise on myopia in children aged between 10-15 years. Study Design- A Randomized Clinical Trial Study setting- The setting were MMIMSR, Mullana-Ambala and Ashirwad Eye Hospital, Yamunanagar-Ambala. Participants- 50 subjects of both genders mean age of 12.86±1.48 years with diagnosed case of myopia were recruited through criteria based purposive sampling. Method- Consent was taken, random allocation done in to two groups’ Experimental (Exp) group and Control (Ctrl) group. Pre intervention optical power and CISS were taken by Nidek ARK 700A and CISS scale respectively. Exp group receive Palming exercise, Eye warm-up exercise, Cross crawl and Tibetan Eye exercise for three weeks five days per week and 20 mins per day, Ctrl group was advised to use spectacles or contact lenses on regular basis for three weeks. After three weeks of intervention post Optical power and CISS were taken and analyzed. Result- CISS score significantly reduced within both the group after treatment, but there was no significant change observed for optical power in ctrl group. However from end-point to follow-up a significant reduction in CISS occurred (P<0.001) in control group, and no significant change observed for optical power of RE and LE (P=0.13, 0.99 respectively). In contrast, the Exp group showed reduction of optical power (P<0.001), and CISS score (P<0.001).

. Physical activity and Myopia in student population-A Retrospective and Prospective Study

Aim To conclude the connection between physical activity and shortsightdness advancement in student population. Originator of shortsightdness development are not made clear sufficiently. Methods This study contained 100 students with confirmed shortsightdness up to -3 Dsph. The study was administered in the Vibhuti Narayan Government Inter College in the period from July 2015 until November 2015. Eye examination and Multistage Fitness Test were done two times. Results A compelling interaction was documented only conferring to evaluation of physical ability during the second appraisal with a negative sign, signify that an increase of physical activity had an impact on the decrease of differences in values of cycloplegic automatic computer refractometry analysis (right eye Rho: -0.260, p<0.01; left eye Rho: - 0.255, p<0.05). Multivariate regression analysis of impact on the dissimilarity of distance visual acuity outside correction as well as the impact on difference of cycloplegic automatic computer refractometry pointed out that evaluation of physical ability during the analysis had statistically meaningful impact on the reduce of distance visual acuity between analysis (right eye OR: I calculation -0.748, II calculation -0.660, p<0.05; left eye OR: I measurement -0.613, II measurement -0.515, p<0.05) and on reduced difference of cycloplegic automatic computer refractometry (right eye OR: I measurement -0.822, II measurement -0.831, p<0.05; left eye OR: I measurement -0.641, II measurement -0.706, p<0.05). Conclusion Physical activity did not originate the increase of shortsightdness. This study opened a perspective for other studies on the impact of physical activity on shortsightdness.

. Effect of MET & MFR on Primary Open Angle Glaucoma in Adult aged between 15-30 years

Background: Primary open angle glaucoma is one of the major cause of blindness and it have only surgical treatment and lifelong use of medication. Hence many side effects arise. To overcome this, the drugless approach is in practice but the importance of Muscle Energy Technique (met) and Myofacial (MFR) Release is not explored. Objective: To determine the effectiveness of MET and MFR on primary open angle glaucoma in primary open angle glaucoma. Setting: Tertiary care teaching hospital Methods: 12 subjects with Primary open angle glaucoma was recruited through criteria based convenience sampling for the study. The age ranges from 15-30 years. MET and MFR was given to the subjects30 mins/day, six days/week for three weeks. Intraocular pressure was assessed with Tonometer as dependent variable by Ophthalmologist. Pre and post treatment intraocular pressure change is established. Result(s): Pre IOP and Post are 23.11±1.98 mmHg and Post IOP is 20.05±.1.42 mmHg respectively. The mean pre-post difference is 3.1± 1.9 mmHg with significance difference of p< 0.001. Conclusion: MET and MFR reduce intraocular pressure and relieve from other symptoms.

. Orthodontically Induced Root Resorption-A Review

Root resorption is the destructive process of the cementum and/or dentine layers of a tooth root due to clastic cell activity which leads to a subsequent loss root structure of a tooth. This process may be physiological or pathological. Physiological root resorption of deciduous teeth naturally occurs when the permanent teeth begin to erupt. It may also occur to a small degree in the permanent dentition associated with physiological tooth movement.1 Pathological root resorption has been related to orthodontic tooth movement, trauma, and ectopic eruption of adjacent teeth and in association with other pathology. Root resorption is an unpredictable, unavoidable pathologic consequence that occurs during orthodontic tooth movement. Fortunately in the majority of cases, root resorption is minimal. There are many possible causes to root resorption as a sequel of orthodontic treatment with fixed appliance. It is therefore essential for a clinician to be aware of these factors, to be able to estimate the risk of root resorption individually for each patient.

. Use of Vibration in Orthodontics-A Review

In the pursuit of increasing treatment efficiency and decreasing treatment duration, vibratory stimulation has been advocated as a possible adjunct to orthodontic appliances to increase the rate of tooth movement. Following this, a new device called the Acceledent has become commercially available, and is aimed at decreasing treatment duration by accelerating periodontal and bony tissue remodeling with low magnitude high frequency vibration. Surgical methods, regardless of technique, are still invasive to some degree, and hence have their associated complications. Hence, non-invasive methods have come to the force. Vibration was mostly investigated and gave the most promising results. The concept of using physical approaches came from the idea that applying orthodontic forces causes bone bending (bone bending theory) and bioelectrical potential develops. The concave site will be negatively charged attracting osteoblasts and the convex site will be positively charged attracting osteoclasts.

. Surgical Approaches to Accelerate Orthodontic Tooth Movement-A Review

Surgical technique to accelerate the rate of orthodontic tooth movement has been recognized in many case reports. It is a clinically successful method used for mature patients, where time of orthodontic treatment may be important in preferred groups of patients. The alveolar bone remodeling and PDL are the significant factors in orthodontic tooth movement, and bone turnover is identified to enlarge after fracture, bone grafting, and osteotomy. Various surgical procedures are there to accelerate the orthodontic tooth movement such as distraction osteogenesis, corticotomy, osteotomy, micro-osteoperforations and piezocision technique.
