Identifying Children at Risk of High Myopia Using Population Centile Curves of Refraction

Chen, Yanxian; Zhang, Jian; Morgan, Ian G; He, Mingguang


PURPOSE To construct reference centile curves of refraction based on population-based data as an age-specific severity scale to evaluate their efficacy as a tool for identifying children at risk of developing high myopia in a longitudinal study.
