Myopia 14

Myopia 14: Introduction

Myopia 14: Myopia is an eye disorder characterized by the ability to see close objects clearly but distant objects appear blurry. It is also known as shortsightedness or nearsightedness and the underlying process involved is an a refractive error. Researchers have discovered a number of genes linked to an increased susceptibility of developing myopia. Having this genetic anomaly does not mean a person will definitely develop myopia but their chances are increased, especially if certain triggering factors are also present e.g. visual stress due to close work (computers, reading). Type 14 is linked to a gene on chromosome 1p36. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Myopia 14 is available below.
