PURPOSE To determine the trends in prevalence of myopia in Israeli young adults over approximately a generation, as well as associated factors and variation in the impact of these factors on myopia prevalence in this region over time. DESIGN Retrospective, cross-sectional study. PARTICIPANTS One hundred four thousand six hundred eighty-nine consecutive persons 16 to 19 years of age born between 1971 and 1994 who had not yet enlisted in the Israeli Army but had completed the medical… 
Myopia and Childhood Migration: A Study of 607 862 Adolescents.
TLDR
Immigrants arriving after 11 years of age showed markedly lower ORs for myopia and high myopia relative to Israeli-born controls or those arriving during early childhood, likely because of environmental and lifestyle changes.
Prevalence of Myopia in Newly Enlisted Airmen at Joint Base San Antonio
TLDR
The prevalence of myopia presented is higher than previous studies, reflecting a continued trend towards increased myopia prevalence worldwide.
Recent Epidemiology Study Data of Myopia
TLDR
The epidemiological studies on myopia after 2018 are summarized and the risk factors associated with myopia are analyzed to formulate reasonable prevention and control measures of myopia to protect people's health, especially for adolescents.
The relationship between education levels, lifestyle, and religion regarding the prevalence of myopia in Israel
TLDR
In this community most parents think that myopia progression should be treated but most of them are unaware of the currently available treatments.
Global disease burden of uncorrected refractive error among adolescents from 1990 to 2019
TLDR
Higher socioeconomic status, urbanization rates and education levels are associated with a heavier disease burden of URE among adolescents, and the findings can provide a reference for policy making on resource allocation for URE prevention and control in teenagers.
The prevalence of refractive errors in college students in Israel.
TLDR
Myopia prevalence in Israeli college students is high, showing associations with Jewish, but not Arab, ethnicity, suggesting that ethnic factors may play a role in the refractive differences between Arabs and Jews.
A large population study reveals a novel association between congenital color vision deficiency and environmental factors
TLDR
A retrospective study of the computerized database of the northern recruitment center of Israel of 53,895 consecutive male Jewish conscripts 16–19 years old reveals a possible novel association of CVD with environmental factors.
Update and guidance on management of myopia. European Society of Ophthalmology in cooperation with International Myopia Institute
TLDR
The European Society of Ophthalmology decided to publish this update of the current information and guidance on management of myopia, where the pathogenesis and genetics of the myopia are summarized, and epidemiology, risk factors, preventive and treatment options are discussed in details.

TLDR
Higher greenness surrounding schools might reduce the risk of visual impairment, possibly owing in part to lower PM1 and NO2 in vegetated areas.
Protective effects of riboflavin-UVA-mediated posterior sclera collagen cross-linking in a guinea pig model of form-deprived myopia.
TLDR
The posterior sClera collagen cross-linking induced by riboflavin-UVA can slow down the progress of myopia and increase the sclera biomechanical strength in the guinea pig model of form-deprived myopia.

TLDR
The prevalence of myopia and high myopia increased each year in Korean young adult men and was associated with birth season, education level, height, weight, and body mass index.
Global variations and time trends in the prevalence of childhood myopia, a systematic review and quantitative meta-analysis: implications for aetiology and early prevention
TLDR
Rapid increases in myopia prevalence over time, particularly in East Asians, combined with a universally higher risk of myopia in urban settings, suggest that environmental factors play an important role in myopic development, which may offer scope for prevention.

PURPOSE To investigate the hypothesis that the excessive growth of the eye in myopia is associated with general growth and thus influenced by early life biological and social factors, and that these
The changing prevalence of myopia in young adults: a 13-year series of population-based prevalence surveys.
TLDR
Although there was an association with the level of education, gender, ethnicity, and origin, the prevalence of myopia increased on an annual basis, independent of these factors.
Increasing Prevalence of Myopia in Europe and the Impact of Education
TLDR
Myopia is becoming more common in Europe; although education levels have increased and are associated with myopia, higher education seems to be an additive rather than explanatory factor.
The epidemics of myopia: Aetiology and prevention
TLDR
Combining increased time outdoors in schools, to slow the onset of myopia, with clinical methods for slowing myopic progression, should lead to the control of this epidemic, which would otherwise pose a major health challenge.
Global Prevalence of Myopia and High Myopia and Temporal Trends from 2000 through 2050.
TLDR
Myopia and high myopia estimates from 2000 to 2050 suggest significant increases in prevalences globally, with implications for planning services, including managing and preventing myopia-related ocular complications and vision loss among almost 1 billion people with highMyopia.
Myopia and the urban environment: findings in a sample of 12-year-old Australian school children.
TLDR
The higher myopia prevalence in inner city-urban areas compared with outer suburban areas for this large childhood sample suggest that even moderate environmental differences within a predominantly urban setting may be associated with increased odds of myopia.
The Association between Near Work Activities and Myopia in Children—A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
It is found that more time spent on near work activities was associated with higher odds of myopia and the development of a strategy to reduce the impact of near work on myopia would be important for preventing myopia in children.

TLDR
A downward trend in the prevalence of normal BMI among both male and female adolescents was obtained, while trends of overweight and obesity (in both genders) and underweight (only among females) rose, and Hierarchical clustering analysis revealed the intricate relations between gender, BMI, and medical signatures.
