Patients with high myopia account for 0.5%-5.0% of the global population. Relevant studies predicted that by 2050, the global number of myopia and high-myopia patients will have reached 5 billion and 900 million, respectively.
An association between changes in ocular structural parameters and the development of myopia and their role in the development of myopia require elucidation.
To explore the progression of high myopia.
This study included 195 children aged 6–17 years with myopia who underwent eye examination conducted by an ophthalmologist.
The diopter of high myopia was correlated with age and axial length (AL), and AL of high myopia was negatively correlated with K1, K2, and Km, and positively correlated with age and anterior chamber depth.
There are differences in AL/R values between high myopia and low-middle myopia, which can be used for the classification of ametropia. The degree of myopia has some influence on higher-order aberrations.
Changes in ocular structure parameters are closely related to the progression of myopia.
