PURPOSE To investigate whether time outdoors and a range of other activities are associated with change in spherical equivalent (SE) and axial length in Chinese children over a period of 2 years. METHODS A total of 1997 children aged 12.7 ± 0.5 (10.9-15.6) years in the Anyang Childhood Eye Study (ACES) were examined annually (baseline and two follow-up(More)
PURPOSE To examine the associations of near work related parameters with spherical equivalent refraction and axial length in Chinese children. METHODS A total of 1770 grade 7 students with mean age of 12.7 years were examined with cycloplegic autorefraction and axial length. Questions were asked regarding time spent in near work and outdoors per day, and(More)
PURPOSE To study the distribution of peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness in a population of 12-year-old children in central China using iVue-100 spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). METHODS Twelve-year-old students (n = 2105) from four randomly selected middle schools in Anyang, China, participated in the study. Each(More)
PURPOSE To develop three-surface paraxial schematic eyes with different ages and sexes based on data for 7- and 14-year-old Chinese children from the Anyang Childhood Eye Study. METHODS Six sets of paraxial schematic eyes, including 7-year-old eyes, 7-year-old male eyes, 7-year-old female eyes, 14-year-old eyes, 14-year-old male eyes, and 14-year-old(More)
Chinese eye exercises have been implemented in China as an intervention for controlling children's myopia for over 50 years. This nested case-control study investigated Chinese eye exercises and their association with myopia development in junior middle school children. Outcome measures were the onset and progression of myopia over a two-year period. Cases(More)
Recently, the distribution characteristics of retinal nerve fiber layer thickness in myopic population have raised scholars' attention. The retinal nerve fiber layer thickness is varied with different refractive statuses, and is correlated to many factors like age, eye elongation, and fundus changes. Further exploration of the relationship between myopia(More)
To analyze the components of young Chinese eyes with special attention to differences in corneal power, anterior segment length and lens power. Cycloplegic refractions and ocular biometry with LENSTAR were used to calculate lens power with Bennett's method. Mean refraction and mean values for the ocular components of five different refractive groups were(More)

PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy of Chinese eye exercises on reducing accommodative lag in children by a randomized, double-blinded controlled trial. METHODS A total of 190 children aged 10 to 14 years with emmetropia to moderate myopia were included. They were randomly allocated to three groups: standard Chinese eye exercises group (trained for eye(More)
PURPOSE To test the hypothesis that relative peripheral hyperopia predicts development and progression of myopia. METHODS Refraction along the horizontal visual field was measured under cycloplegia at visual field angles of 0°, ±15°, and ±30° at baseline, 1 and 2 years in over 1700 initially 7-year-old Chinese children, and at baseline and 1 year in over(More)
