Cases with SEa$?-0.5D were classified according to the cylindrical correction to simple myopia
(cyl-inder >-0.5D and -0.5D and <0.5D), compound hyperopic stigmatism (cylinder [greater than or equal to]0.5D) and mixed hyperopic stigmatism (cylinder a$?-0.5D) (Table-V).
The patients were divided according to their refractive errors and the use of MMC during surgery into four groups: simple myopia without MMC, simple myopia with MMC, compound myopic astigmatism with MMC, and compound myopic astigmatism without MMC.
In this study, we compared the effect of intraoperative MMC on the correction of simple myopia and astigmatism.
We wanted to know the effect of MMC on the simple myopia and astigmatism groups in the long term.
is the most common variant with a good prognosis.
Simple myopia was found in 2.4% children while astigmatism (both simple and compound combined) was found in around 2.7% children.
In the current study, simple myopia was found in 2.4% children while astigmatism (both simple and compound combined) was found in around 2.7% children.
CONCLUSIONS: In the present study, the prevalence of refractive errors was found to be 7.4% among the study children (1.3% known and 6.1% undiagnosed) with 2.4% simple myopia and 2.7% astigmatism.
