Myopia 23, Autosomal Recessive; Myp23


Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a refractive error of the eye. Light rays from a distant object are focused in front of the retina and those from a near object are focused in the retina; therefore distant objects are blurry and near objects are clear (summary by Kaiser et al., 2004).For a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of myopia, see {160700}.
