"Background: We aimed to assess the relationship between breastfeeding and myopia in a school-based study in rural China. In addition, we performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to confirm the association from available observational studies.
Materials and Methods: The school-based study of 2,346 grade 7 students (mean age: 13.8 years) was conducted in southwestern part of China. Myopia was defined as spherical equivalent of less than −0.50 diopter and information regarding breastfeeding was ascertained through a questionnaire. We also performed the literature search in three databases (PubMed, EMBASE, and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials) and reference lists of retrieved studies. Effect estimates were pooled using random-effects models."
