  • *Effects of E, NE, DA and Factor 1 on the baseline AL, 1-year change in AL, baseline SE and 1-year change in SE were analysed using robust regression, adjusted for age, gender and baseline refractive status.

  • AL, axial length; DA, dopamine; E, epinephrine; NE, norepinephrine; SE, spherical equivalent refraction.
