Results are given from long-term follow-up studies of myopic children and adolescents in two French province areas. Out of more than 600 cases under study, a scant hundred were followed regularly (twice a year) for more than eight years.

Atropine and contact lenses could arrest progression in some cases.

Cases with an early onset of myopia usually progress most. Most cases become stable at, or after the age of 20 years. The variability of progression is however stressed.

All considered, the present results are in accord with those of other myopia follow-up studies.
