Abstract

Chen et al (see page 1607) improve our understanding of the accuracy with which clinicians can identify children destined to develop high myopia. Given the high heritability of refractive error, it may come as a surprise that they find genetic testing does not improve prediction beyond that obtainable from cycloplegic autorefraction. Their study has implications for clinical practice.
