Myopic Maculopathy - Causes and Risk Factors

For general myopia, studies have shown that a strong family history of short-sightedness and not enough time outdoors during youth are risk factors of myopia. The higher the level of myopia, the greater the likelihood of forming pathologic myopia, outpouchings (staphyloma) in the back wall of the eye, and myopic maculopathy.
