2. Causes of Myopia

The exact cause of myopia remains unclear. However, research shows that the disorder is a result of a combination and interacting effects of both hereditary and environmental factors. Environmentally, activities done at close proximity, such as video games, reading, and use of a computer screen, can increase the risk of myopia.

These activities are also thought to be responsible for the current increase in the prevalence of myopia.
