Effect of Stature and Other Anthropometric Parameters on Eye Size and Refraction in a Population-Based Study of Australian Children
PURPOSE. To determine the effect of anthropometric parameters on refraction and ocular biometry. METHODS. Noncontact methods were used to examine ocular dimensions and cycloplegic refraction in a stratified random cluster sample of year-1 Sydney school students (mean age, 6 years; n = 1765). Height, body weight, and waist circumference were measured according to a standardized protocol. Body mass index (BMI) was subsequently calculated. The percentage of body fat was measured with leg-leg...[Show more]
