Xiang, Fan; He, Mingguang; Morgan, Ian


Objective: To examine annual changes in refraction and ocular components around the onset of myopia in Chinese children. Design: Longitudinal study. Participants: Twins aged 7 to 15 years in 2006 from the Guangzhou Twin Registry. Methods: Participants underwent eye examinations annually from 2006 to 2010.
