The researchers consider that it is not possible to predict the axial length based only on optometric data, such as the corneal radius of curvature and the spherical equivalent
Children with first prescription before the age of 10 years showed the strongest progression and a significantly final Spherical Equivalent (SER). All children who developed SER ≤−3 D at 10 years were highly myopic as adults, children who had SER between −1.5 D and −3 D at 10 years had 46.0% risk of high myopia, and children with SER between −0.5 D and −1.5 D had 32.6% risk of high myopia.
