Infant emmetropization: longitudinal changes in refraction components from nine to twenty months of age.

Abstract:

Rapid emmetropization is described in pediatrically normal infants from 9 months of age during the following year. The infants, obtained from various categories of the Cambridge population screening program, provided a broad range of refractive errors. The large group of 254 nonanisometropic infants studied allowed the mean rate of change and dependence on the initial refraction value to be determined. Refraction was measured by cycloplegic retinoscopy. Rapid emmetropization changes occurred ...
