Harnessing Circadian Rhythms for Optimum Vision: mivision

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

Myopia, especially in its extreme degrees, is a leading cause of visual impairment because of its association with a number of vision threating eye diseases such as retinal tear and detachment, glaucoma and cataract. A large body of clinical research suggests that myopia represents a ‘complex’ disorder with both environmental (such as excessive near work, lesser outdoor light exposure, etc.) and genetic factors contributing to its development and progression. Despite much research, the underlying mechanisms responsible for myopia are unknown. Due to increasing prevalence, high costs associated with optical and surgical correction of myopia, and the disease complications, myopia is recognised as a major and
alarming public health problem around the world.
