Fotedar, Reena; Rochtchina, Elena; Morgan, Ian; Wang, Jie Jin; Mitchell, Paul; Rose, Kathryn A


Purpose: To compare pre- and postcycloplegic autorefraction in two separate age samples of Australian school children. Design: Population-based cross-sectional study of random cluster samples. Methods: Autorefraction was performed before and after cycloplegia, using 1% cyclopentolate, in the right eyes of 2,233 12-year-old and 210 6-year-old children. Results: The mean spherical equivalent (SEQ) difference between these measures was 0.84 diopters (D) (95% confidence interval (CI) 0.81 to 0.87...[Show more]
