     2. It is chiefly exercised in a parental manner, by parents, or those who are placed in loco parentis. A parent may therefore justify the correction of the child either corporally or by confinement; and a schoolmaster, under whose care and instruction a parent has placed his child, may equally justify similar correction; but the correction in both, cases must be moderate, and in proper manner. Com. Dig. Pleader, 3 M. 19; Hawk. c. 60, s. 23, and c. 62, s. 2 c. 29, s. 5.

Abbott on Shipp. 160; 1 Ch. Pr. 73; 14 John. R. 119; 15 )lass. 365; 1 Bay, 3; Bee, 161; 1 Pet. Adm. Dec. 168; Molloy, 209; 1 Ware's R. 83. Such has been the general rule. But by a proviso to an act of congress, approved the 28th of September, l850, flogging in the navy and on board vessels of commerce was abolished.

Optometric interventions, whether refractive corrections, vision therapy, or coloured filters, should not be thought of as a treatment for dyslexia or other specific learning difficulties; however, all who wish to read are likely to find it easier when text is clear, stable, and comfortable and if Optometric interventions help achieve this, they are likely to be worthwhile.
Other factors that could influence dryness post-LASIK are controversial: for example, it is possible that patients requiring high refractive corrections are at an increased risk for developing chronic dry eye and regression.
(42) Accurate and task specific prescribing and dispensing of refractive correction for people with CP is critical to optimise visual performance, for example, it is vital to consider the working distance for screen-based communication technology, any head rests/support, and the extent of head control ability.
Interestingly, children with non-strabismic anisometropic amblyopia have been shown to improve with treatment regardless of their age, indicating that the conventional sensitive period of seven to eight years may not apply and these children should be managed comprehensively with full refractive correction and patching at any age.
Based on the encouraging outcomes, it seems that sequential ICRS and pIOL implantation provides good visual and refractive outcomes, suggesting that the procedure is predictable for refractive correction of keratoconus.
Eye Health education and screening may help to address the unmet need for refractive correction. To educate the parent is about the eye screening in school going children.
However, they can have ocular comorbidities such as glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration (ARMD), which can preserve normal central vision with refractive correction in the early stage and cause visual loss in the advanced stage.
However, not all patients with an accommodative esotropia achieve binocular single vision despite wearing their full refractive correction, as there can be a partially accommodative element.
The range of the refractive error and refractive correction was not part of our inclusion criteria.
Computer controlled application of laser energy removes a corneal tissue to achieve the desired refractive correction. The advantage of this procedure is that it is flap free unlike LASIK where flap related complications occur.
Alterations to refractive correction are performed two weeks postoperatively followed by two 'lock-in' procedures to set the refraction.
