High myopes have an elevated risk of developing cataracts, glaucoma, retinal detachments and myopic maculopathy, Dr Bullimore said.
[19] compared choroidal thickness in pathologic myopic eyes in early classification of dry-type myopic maculopathy which were with a tessellated fundus and with diffuse chorioretinal atrophy.
The photoreceptor layer may not have been disrupted, maintaining fairly normal visual function in adolescents and young adults with high myopia compared to their aged counterparts, in which the severity of both myopia and other myopic maculopathy increases, leading to decreased VA.
Patients with diagnosed choroidal and retinal neovascularisation such as PDR, diabetic macular oedema, central retinal vein occlusion, neovascular glaucoma myopic maculopathy, and age-related maculopathy (wet type) were included in the study.
Researchers in Japan found that myopic maculopathy, a disease of the macula in nearsighted patients, progresses in about four out of 10 myopic eyes.
Topics include fundus auto fluorescent imaging, successful surgery using optical coordinates tomography and correlation with visual prognosis, advanced glycation, disease mechanisms and treatment, retinal disease in membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis Type II, treatment of choroidal neovascularization in the highly myopic, and risk factors involved in the development of myopic maculopathy. Includes illustrations and imagery.
Being able to reduce the risk of myopic pathology such as glaucoma, retinal detachment and myopic maculopathy is also extremely appealing to parents.

Degenerative myopia was defined by a myopic refractive error of at least-6 diopters and typical myopic maculopathy with stretching of the macula.9 Retinal disease comprised diabetic retinopathy, retinal vascular disease, and age-related macular degeneration (AMD).10 Diabetic retinopathy was present if the macula showed cystoid macular edema, hard exudates, intraretinal hemorrhages, and microaneurysms.10 AMD was characterized by degeneration or dystrophy of macular retina without any other cause, such as diabetic or hypertensive retinopathy.11,12Statistical Analysis: Statistical analysis was performed using SPSS software version 17 (SPSS, Inc., Chicago, IL).
High myopia, often taken as refraction greater than -6.00D, has long been associated with sight-threatening conditions including myopic maculopathy, retinal detachment, cataract and glaucoma.
Myopic maculopathy, such as diffuse and patchy chorioretinal atrophy, lacquer cracks, myopic choroidal neovascularization (CNV), myopic subretinal hemorrhage (mSH), and posterior staphyloma, has been reported to be a significant cause of visual impairment and legal blindness worldwide, especially in Asian countries [1-4].
The exclusion criteria were myopic maculopathy, any prior history or clinical evidence of vitreoretinal conditions or surgery, IOP > 21 mmHg, visual field defects, and systemic diseases potentially affecting the eyes (Figure 1).
