In this study, we examine whether the use of an in-clinic app for 3-D printed glasses reduces disparities in access to eyeglasses for our patients on Masshealth. Our intervention will address social determinants of health and improve pediatric health outcomes namely, how and when children having publicly funded health insurance receive eyeglasses. Our short-term objectives are (1) to compare the time to receive glasses between publicly funded MassHealth eyeglasses and an in-clinic order of 3D printed glasses (2) to evaluate compliance with glasses wear in these two groups, and (3) to evaluate visual function and quality-of-life outcomes in these two groups. The student would be expected to contribute and help with participant recruitment, conducting surveys, managing participant data, and data analysis.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
