Abstract

Importance Understanding visual impairment (VI) under different definitions and potential risk factors in high myopic is important for future myopia control. Background Limited studies exists investigating the VI among high myopic and with varying VI definitions. Design Registry cohort study. Participants Eight hundred and eighty‐four participants were from ZOC‐BHVI study. Methods Subjects aged 7 to 70 years with high myopia were enrolled. Uncorrected visual acuity and best‐corrected visual acuity (UCVA and BCVA), cycloplegic refraction, axial length (AL), corneal curvatures, anterior chamber depth and lens thickness were measured. Axial length/corneal radius of curvature ratio (AL/CR ra..
