Abstract

Rearing under high-intensity illumination produces a hyperopic shift in chicks and inhibits the development of form-deprivation myopia in chicks and primates. Recent studies also show that time spent outdoors is protective against the development of myopia in children. In this study, we examined the effects of 120 minutes of exposure to 500 and 1000 lux of bright illumination on axial length and choroidal thickness (ChT) in young adult participants.
