Myopia, due to its rapid progression and sever complications, has become an important global public health issue.Although there are numerous reports on myopia progression and its risk factors in university students, longitudinal reports are relatively rare and mainly focused on medical students.Generally, the myopia progression is slow and stable among the university students.More myopic initial refraction, more near distance work and less outdoor activity are the clear risk factors for myopia progression in this population.This review summarized the reports on myopia progression and its risk factors, such as age, sex, refractive status, near distance work or outdoor activity in university students.

Key words:

University students; Myopia; Progression; Risk factors
