PhD - Myopia and light exposure


This study investigates the effect of light exposure on myopia development in children. Light exposure is quantified using light-meter badges which monitor light exposure every few seconds over long periods. Refractive status in children is followed over time to explore the relationships between light exposure, refractive changes and the development of myopia.
