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.
