Reduction of infant myopia: a longitudinal cycloplegic study.

Abstract:

Changes of cycloplegic retinoscopy refraction from 8.5 to 38.5 months of age were compared in two infant groups in the Cambridge population: "infant myopes", having at least one myopic axis (0 to -3.5 D inclusive), and a second, "control" group with low hyperopia (< or = +3.5 D). Cycloplegia eliminated the variable accommodation of infants. The myopic group showed a significant emmetropization of the mean spherical equivalent towards low hyperopia by 3 yr. There was no significant change i...
