What is Myopia?
Before you can defeat your enemy, you need to know exactly what it is. Myopia is a disease of the eye that is usually the result of an eyeball that has grown too long.
We call how long the eyeball is the ‘axial length’. When the axial length grows excessively long, your vision will suffer in direct correlation.
So any treatment we discuss has to show efficacy in its ability to reduce axial length elongation compared to a control group.
|Other times, the cornea may be too steep which can also cause myopia. However, for the sake of this article, we will address the major cause of myopia which is the excessive axial length of the eye.
When we talk about managing myopia, we will be talking about ways that have shown clinical evidence in slowing down axial length growth.
