Prevention of Myopia progression
For most people with myopia, the condition has only refractive ramifications. But those with high myopia are at risk for ocular pathology. (High myopia has recently been defined as –5.0 D or worse.) Thus, the rising prevalence of myopia may mean an increasing number of high myopes who are at risk for developing associated serious eye diseases, ranging from choroidal neovascularization to glaucoma and retinal detachment.
