Lifestyle choices and risk of developing short-sightedness - Returned datasets

Description

This category contains data obtained from the analysis of lifestyle choices that minimise the risk of developing myopia that was conducted by the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Standard epidemiological methods were utilised to determine whether previously identified risk factors associated with myopia in the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children (ALSPAC) cohort of children are replicated in the UK BioBank adult participants (where the correspondence of available data permit such replication). Additional analysis was carried out to test whether febrile illnesses during childhood increase the risk of myopia.
