Morjaria, P., Bastawrous, A., Murthy, G.V.S., Evans, J. and Gilbert, C.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether a health education package for teachers, parents and children (aged 11–15 years), delivered using Peek increases spectacle wear at 3 to 4 months and uptake of referral of children identified with other eye conditions.
This was a cluster randomized, doublemasked clinical trial of children with and without URE.
Educating parents, teachers and children about refractive errors and the importance of wearing spectacles has the potential to increase spectacle wear amongst children.
Innovative, potentially scalable mobile technology (Peek) will be used to screen, provide health education, track spectacle wear and adherence to follow-up amongst children referred.
