Abstract

A two-year prospective study was carried out to assess the effect of myopic defocus on the rate of childhood myopia progression. Ninety four myopic school children out of 106 aged between 9-14 years old completed the study. Subjects were randomly allocated to a myopic defocus (MD) group or a no defocus (ND) group. It was found that contrary to many animal studies, myopic defocus can speed up myopia development in already myopic humans.
