Refractive error was found to be the cause in 61% of eyes with vision impairment.
A gradual shift toward less- positive values of refractive error occurred with increasing age in both boys and girls.
Myopia risk was associated with female gender and having a father with a higher level of schooling.
Higher risk of myopia in children of older ages was of borderline statistical significance.
