Astigmatism in infants.
MedLine Citation:
PMID:  694539     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Compared with children of school age, infants show ten times the incidence and considerably greater amounts of clinically significant astigmatism. The amount begins to decrease in the second semester of life, and the incidence declines during the third year. The unanticipated results bear on both the etiology and the neural sequelae of astigmatism.
