Five year cumulative incidence of myopic maculopathy in Germany

This study utilized data from over 15,000 participants aged 35-74 years and found a five-year cumulative incidence (new onset) of myopic maculopathy in the general population of 3 in 1,000. In 509 eyes with over 6D of myopia, 7% had myopic maculopathy and of these 50% worsened over the study period.

Six questions on axial length measurement in myopia management

This review covers how well axial length relates to refraction and predicting future myopia, how to measure axial length, its value in orthokeratology and atropine management, how axial length influences a treatment plan and can you practice myopia management without it.

This study showed that adult high myopes with myopic macular degeneration (MMD) show reduced macular sensitivity as measured by microperimetry. That’s not unexpected; but the microperimetry changes occurred before BCVA changes in mild MMD – read more here.
