  • The aim of this study was to establish the prevalence of refractive errors in Jordanian adults of working age, and to study the ocular biometric correlates of refractive error in this population. Refractive error and ocular biometry were measured in 1093 Jordanian adult subjects aged 17–40 years to determine the prevalence of refractive error, and explore structural correlations of ametropia. Refractive error was measured using a Grand‐Seiko GR‐3100K closed‐view infrared autorefractor. Ocular… CONTINUE READING
