    Background: To determine the association between ocular dominance and myopic anisometropia in Chinese myopic subjects. This relevance would facilitate to identify the ocular dominance in bilateral cataract patients. Design: Retrospectively case study. Participants: 1503 Chinese myopic subjects, mean age 27 years, who were candidates for corneal myopic refractive surgery were reviewed between 2011 and 2012. Methods: The ocular dominance was determined by the hole-in-the-card test. The associations between ocular dominance laterality and refractive characters, including the sphere, cylinder, spherical and astigmatic anisometropia, were analyzed. Main outcome measures: Ocular dominance, manifest refraction, cycloplegic refraction. Results: 992 (66%) subjects were right-eye dominant while 511 (34%) subjects were left-eye dominant. The dominant eyes had lower spherical equivalents (SE) and.. View More»
