Hello, doctor. I am 24 years old, -8.5D. After the last question, I found two Eye MD to evaluate my fundus retinal status, and they all said that everything was normal. The inspection results show that my axial length has increased by about 0.1mm compared with five years ago. Is this normal for an adult (Asian)? Can I be identified as pathological myopia?
There is a saying in China that "if the axial length exceeds 28mm, you will lose your sight after you are 45 years old". My axial length is 28.8mm and 28.6mm, so I am very anxious. I want to know whether this statement is reliable?Is the probability of retinal tears in adults with stable axial length the same in normal people and people with high myopia?
Thank you for your reply！！！
