Abstract

Presentation Description : Previous studies suggested that the effects of time outdoors are primarily seen in non-myopic children, but not in myopic children. Recently the ROCT study shows that the myopic progression in the children was significant less in the time outdoors encouraged group.

This abstract was presented at the 2019 ARVO Annual Meeting, held in Vancouver, Canada, April 28 - May 2, 2019.
