    2. Associations of refractive errors and retinal changes measured by optical coherence tomography: A systematic review and meta-analysis

      Associations of refractive errors and retinal changes measured by optical coherence tomography: A systematic review and meta-analysis
      Studies reporting alteration in retinal thickness using optical coherence tomography (OCT) have been performed in different populations and various degrees of refractive error, producing inconsistent results. Therefore, we performed a meta-analysis to evaluate the alterations in retinal OCT measurements in myopic and hyperopic patients compared to controls. Evaluation of different retinal layers thickness may have significance for developing novel approaches for preventing, diagnosing, and treating refractive errors and their complications ...

  2. About World Health Organization

    World Health Organization

    World Health Organization (WHO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations (UN) that acts as a coordinating authority on international public health. Established on 7 April 1948, and headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, the agency inherited the mandate and resources of its predecessor, the Health Organization, which had been an agency of the League of Nations. WHO is the directing and coordinating authority for health within the United Nations system. It is responsible for providing leadership on global health matters, shaping the health research agenda, setting norms and standards, articulating evidence-based policy options, providing technical support to countries and monitoring and assessing health trends. In the 21st century, health is a shared responsibility, involving equitable access to essential care and collective defence against transnational threats.
