Hello! Myopia usually develops in children from 8 to 14. The risk of developing myopia is increased with family history and prolonged close-up work, such as reading or sitting close to the television or computer, although there is little scientific evidence for this. In uncontrolled diabetes, myopia may occur suddenly and then change from day to day just as blood sugar levels. For example, myopia may be the first sign of type-2 diabetes and it usually clears up when the cause is treated.

Hyperphacosorbitomyopicosis is edema of the crystalline lens in the eye commonly resulting in a myopia, or near-sightedness. This edema is caused by the accumulation of sorbitol, a sugar alcohol.[1] This may occur when blood glucose levels are above normal, such as in diabetes mellitus.
