Retinal pathology is common in younger people with high myopia

This hospital-based study of high myopes aged 12 to 47 years found that myopia-related retinal pathologies were common, especially with more than 8D of myopia, greater than 26.5mm axial length and longer durations of myopia. Age and family history were not associated with retinal pathology – highlighting the need for close retinal health monitoring in high myopes of all ages.
