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:
- Overcorrecting..
- Undercorrecting (which includes not correcting)..
- Peripheral defocus (some reasonably new lenses are using technologies to do this and is getting closer/slowing progression)..

Simply "light" could fit the facts, maybe getting enough light into the peripheral could do the trick (and more exercise/daylight/veggies/etc..).
