Progression of myopia in youth: age of cessation.


Journal Article

Patient records of young myopes were collected from three optometry practices. An index of the age at which increases of myopia in young people cease was derived using four different graphical and statistical methods. The results suggest that myopia stops increasing earlier in females than in males. There is, however, a great deal of individual variability in cessation age. Some implications for clinical practice and clinical research are discussed.
