What is causing progression of myopia?
Myopia is getting widespread (check South Korea stats).
What major changes have happened that could cause this?
- Less exercise and and more staring at tiny screens -are obvious ones - but how?
From reading discussions on ophthalmology forums and articles on pubmed, apparently the cause is not:
- Undercorrecting (which includes not correcting)..
- Peripheral defocus (some reasonably new lenses are using technologies to do this and is getting closer/slowing progression)..
"Light" -fits all the facts so far, so maybe getting enough light into the peripheral could do the trick (and more exercise/daylight/etc..).
