The prevalence of myopia and high myopia is rising worldwide at an alarming pace [1,2]. This is in an order or sequence of processes linked to significant increases in the risk of vision impairment from pathological conditions associated with high myopia, including retinal damage, cataract, and glaucoma [1,2].

Regrettably, the issue of vision impairment associated with myopia receives limited attention from a public health viewpoint in terms of assessment of prevalence, protective interventions, and possible treatment selections [1,2].
