  • PURPOSE To elucidate the prevalence of astigmatism and its corneal component, the association between the amount of astigmatism and its axis, and the association between the axis of astigmatism and body mass index (BMI) in Taiwanese preschool children. METHODS In this population-based study we analyzed 2 data sets, one obtained by retrospective review of vision-screening data and another obtained in a prospective observational study. Each study collected data for age, sex, and refraction… CONTINUE READING
