Table 4 Changes in autorefraction and subjective refraction before and after cycloplegia

From: A randomized clinical trial using cyclopentolate and tropicamide to compare cycloplegic refraction in Chinese young adults with dark irises

  Cyclopentolate Group (n = 150) Tropicamide Group (n = 150) p-value+
Autorefraction
 Sphere change (D) 0.40 ± 0.34(0.25) 0.40 ± 0.32(0.25) 0.903
 Cylinder change (D) −0.02 ± 0.27(0.00) −0.01 ± 0.27(0.00) 0.650
 Spherical equivalent change (D) 0.39 ± 0.36(0.38) 0.39 ± 0.34(0.38) 0.962
Subjective refraction
 Sphere change (D) 0.39 ± 0.32(0.25) 0.39 ± 0.34(0.25) 0.812
 Cylinder change (D) 0.02 ± 0.29(0.00) 0.00 ± 0.31(0.00) 0.844
 Spherical equivalent change (D) 0.40 ± 0.35(0.38) 0.39 ± 0.38(0.38) 0.526
