Refractive errors in 3-6 year-old Chinese children: a very low prevalence of myopia?
PURPOSE To examine the prevalence of refractive errors in children aged 3-6 years in China. METHODS Children were recruited for a trial of a home-based amblyopia screening kit in Guangzhou preschools, during which cycloplegic refractions were measured in both eyes of 2480 children. Cycloplegic refraction (from 3 to 4 drops of 1% cyclopentolate to ensure abolition of the light reflex) was measured by both autorefraction and retinoscopy. Refractive errors were defined as followed: myopia (at...[Show more]
