Pattern of night-time light exposure before sleep in young adult myopes and emmetropes

Research output: Contribution to journalMeeting Abstractpeer-review

Abstract

Several recent studies have demonstrated poor sleep quality in myopes. A recent study found that young myopes have significantly delayed melatonin circadian timing, delayed sleep onset, greater sleep onset latency, and shorter sleep duration compared to emmetropes (Chakraborty et al, PMID: 33030546). To better understand these sleep characteristics in myopes, this study examined the differences in the pattern of night-time light exposure before sleep in myopes and emmetropes.
