Abstract: Purpose: To examine macular and peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness in amblyopia. Design: Population-based cross-sectional study. Participants: Of 4118 children examined in the Sydney Childhood Eye Study (incorporating the Sydney Myopia Study) from 34 randomly selected primary schools and 21 secondary schools from 2003 to 2005, 3529 (85.7%) were included in this analysis. The median age of the 2 samples was 6 years (n = 1395) and 12 years (n = 2134), respectively. Methods: A detailed eye examination was conducted on all children, including determination of best-corrected visual acuity (logarithm of the minimum angle of resolution [logMAR]), autorefraction (RK-F1 autorefractor, Canon, Tokyo, Japan) after cyclopentolate (1%), cover testing to identify strabismus, and optical coherence tomography (StratusOCT, Carl Zeiss Meditec, Dublin, CA) through dilated pupils to obtain macula and peripapillary RNFL thickness. Amblyopia was defined as best visual acuity
