Resum
Purpose. The purpose of this work was to evaluate the potential of a novel custom-designed rigid gas permeable (RGP) contact lens to modify the relative peripheral refractive error in a sample of myopic patients.; Methods. Fifty-two right eyes of 52 myopic patients (mean [+/- SD] age, 21 [+/- 2] years) with spherical refractive errors ranging from -0.75 to -8.00 diopters (D) and refractive astigmatism of 1.00 D or less were fitted with a novel experimental RGP (ExpRGP) lens designed to create my...
