Why do we care about myopia? Unfortunately for many people with myopia, it

is not simply a case of correcting the refractive error. High myopia is associated

with potentially blinding complications including myopic macular degeneration

(MMD), myopic traction maculopathy, retinal detachment and glaucoma. Onset

of these complications tends to occur earlier, compared to other degenerative

macular pathologies; often in people of working age, resulting in both

significant social and economic impact.
