Risk factors


Myopia is a complex eye disease where both genetic and environmental factors play a role in its development and progression. People who have certain genes are at greater risk of developing myopia. When they are exposed to certain environmental factors, such as too much near work and not enough time outdoors, these factors work together to cause and worsen myopia.
