OBJECTIVE To identify the baseline factors independently related to 3-year myopia progression and axial elongation in COMET. METHODS A total of 469 children were enrolled, randomly assigned to progressive addition lenses with a + 2.00 diopter (D) addition or to single vision lenses and observed for 3 years. Eligible children were 6 to 11 years old, with spherical equivalent myopia of - 1.25 to - 4.50 D, bilaterally. The primary and secondary outcomes, myopia progression by cycloplegic… CONTINUE READING
