The prevalence of myopia and high myopia is on the rise across the world.
Recent work from the Brien Holden Vision Institute estimates that by 2050, five billion (50%) people will be myopic, one billion (10%) highly myopic.

Optical and environmental interventions can help in preventing and managing high myopia related ocular complications and reduce the burden of myopia..
