Myopic Maculopathy

Myopic Maculopathy - Causes and Risk Factors

Studies have shown that having a strong family history of short-sightedness, too much time spent on near activities, and not enough time spent outdoors during youth are risk factors for developing higher degrees of myopia or short-sightedness. Consequently, the higher the degree of myopia, the greater the likelihood of developing complications of high myopia, including myopic maculopathy or pathologic myopia.
