Myopia 16

Myopia 16: Introduction

Myopia 16: 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 16 is linked to a gene on chromosome 5p15. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Myopia 16 is available below.
