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]
