I wish we knew: Myopia is becoming more common. Some relate it to chronic indoor life instead of outdoor activities common in human ancestry. There are many suggestive things to modify it including certain dilating drops, light changes and activity modifiers. No true cure is known but good eyeglass and contact correction exists and LASIK is commonly performed.
