There may not be much statistics out there, but just generally speaking what's the most prevalent complication faced by severely myopic people?
I know that I will always be at risk for retinal tears/ detachment, glaucoma, myopic maculoapthy and a host of other problems and reading from all the medhelp posts I understand there is just no way to quanitfy the risk and not all myopic people will face these issues.
But out of all these host of complications, is there one complication that is more common and likely to occur in severely myopic people than others (ex. is there a higher prevalence of retinal tears in highly myopic eyes than glaucoma )? (Note: i am not asking what complication is likely to occur in my eyes, cuz I know it can't be quantified but i am talking about the general severely myopic population)
I guess I am asking because I did have retinal tears at a relatviely young age (one at 16 and one at 25) but was pleased at how easy they were to correct as I took prompt action and had regular checkup and ofcourse will do so in the future to avoid a detachments- I am just kind of worried about maculopathy and glaucoma that even if detected super early, may not have a good prognosis.
Thanks and hope my question makes sense. Apologies if this has been asked before.
