41 Possible Causes for Low to Moderate Myopia

  • Hay Fever

    The primary predictor variable, refractive error, was classified as emmetropia (-0.99 to 0.99 diopters [D]), low myopia (-1.00 to -2.99 D), moderate myopia (-3.00 to -5.99[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Wagner Disease

    Clinical description Affected patients typically exhibit low or moderate myopia, with only a few suffering from severe myopia.[orpha.net]

  • Myopia

    CONCLUSIONS: The T-CAT custom PRK procedure provided good early outcomes for treating patients with low to moderate myopia with or without astigmatism.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA) was significantly higher in low and moderate myopia groups than the high myopia group (P 0.001; P 0.002).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Although high myopia is a strong risk factor for glaucoma subtypes, low and moderate myopia also have a significant effect on glaucoma risk.[ophth.wisc.edu]

  • Salzmann's Nodular Dystrophy

    Lamellar Keratectomy is a surgical procedure used to correct high degrees of myopia, and low-to-moderate amounts of hyperopia.[aetna.com] The author concluded that mini-RK may be a useful alternative to reduce the invasiveness of RK but retain its efficacy in eyes with low to moderate myopia.[aetna.com] Radial keratotomy for myopia.

  • Optic Disc Drusen

    OCT study results revealed that RNFL measurements were lower in the highly myopic eyes than in eyes with low to moderate myopia, and a linear correlation between RNFL thickness[file.scirp.org]

  • Hyperopia

    A second classification was "hyperopia, emmetropia, low myopia, and moderate/high myopia" (H, E, LM, MM) with H greater than or equal to 1.00 D, E, -0.49 to 0.99 D, LM, -2.99[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Most of today's scanning laser systems, used in the LASIK and PRK procedures, can safely and effectively perform low, moderate and high hyperopic and hyperopic astigmatic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] One refraction classification for central refraction was "nonmyopia, myopia" (nM, M), consisting of nM greater than -0.50 diopters (D; spherical equivalent) and M less than[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
