Objective

The goal of our work is to evaluate the anatomic measurement of the eye using precise ultrasonic biometry for 6-15-year-old children with myopic refraction and their changes after the treatment with the low frequency electromagnetic field.

Methods

70 myopic children (140 eyes) with the accommodation spasm were estimated with the ultrasonic biometry before and after the treatment with the low frequency electromagnetic field. The average of the myopic children ranged between 6 and 15 and the size of the refraction was from -1.0 till -3.0 D.

Results

Before the treatment the myopic children's crystalline lens when fixing the sight to the length and to the nearness didn't change. After the course of the treatment the opportunities of the accommodation of the myopic children have improved, it shows the statistic reliable changes in the eye measurements, when fixing the sight to the length and to the nearness (the average thickness of the crystalline lens was 0.187±0.152 1st group and 0.181±0.153 2nd group in both cases p=0.001).

Conclusions

After the treatment children’s myopic eyes by low frequency electromagnetic field during accommodation the excursions of lens crystalline thickness significantly increases (p<0.05 in all cases).
