Myopia is the most common optical disorder in the world, and is on the rise in all parts of the world. The impact of myopia is evident as the driving force in the development of refractive surgery and of the eye glass and contact lens industries. Clearly, it is a lifestyle issue as well as a childhood disease that involves an unresolved problem in genetics. In Singapore (where myopia has reached the highest rates in the world) as well as in Taiwan and Japan, the affected group has developed greater degrees of myopia, leading to additional secondary effects on vision including blindness. This book provides a comprehensive coverage of all aspects of myopia. It is aimed at ophthalmologists, optometrists, opticians, scientists and pharmaceutical companies. The topics are uniquely treated in that they cover research at the laboratory bench as well as clinical applications. By maintaining a high level of research activity, future generations may be able to forego optical aids altogether.
