Read, Scott A., Collins, Michael J., & Vincent, Stephen J. (2016) Ambient light exposure influences childhood eye growth. In 15th International Myopia Conference, 23 - 27 September 2015, Wenzhou, China. (Unpublished)


• Although there is evidence that outdoor activity is an important factor involved in the development of childhood refractive error,1,2 the mechanism underlying the association between more outdoor activity and less myopia in childhood is not clear.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
