Circadian Rhythms and Myopia

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

Myopia, or short-sightedness, is the most common refractive disorder among children and young adults, and represents the highest incidence of all vision disorders globally.1 In myopic individuals, distant objects appear unfocussed due to longer eyes. The prevalence of myopia is increasing world-wide. One third of the Australian population is currently affected by myopia and a steep increase is expected in the coming years, resulting in about 20 million myopic Australians by 2050.
