Myopia

Why is there still no cure for this?
I don't mean lasik or implanted lenses that only addresses the symptom but rather the means to address the core problem and shorten the eye itself.

          Thank you. I'll read the article in due time.
          But taken from the summary, it's basically fun outdoor activities that lead to working eyes? Makes sense. I remember I developed bad eyesight when I started gaming and not going outside as often.

            yes
            Being indoor and reading a screen 16/7 isn't healthy, not necessary the only cause but maladaptation to that situation seems to be the most common cause.

            Use it or lose it. Like any muscle

            Avoid near work that fills your field of view. Avoid reading dark text on light background. Don't use minus lenses during near work. Err on the side of under-prescription.
            That's about it.

            Thus keeping the eyes working instead of being lazy.

            The eye patch insures both eyes are trained instead of the worse eye being lazy and the strong one doing all the lifting.
            Looking at many different things might help training the "auto focus" of the brain.

          Conditional myopia isn't caused as your picture shows.
          Instead the eye elongates.
          is 100% right
          If you were to balance out your viewing distances, get enough UV light, vitamin D and a proper diet, then it would mostly reverse over the course of a few months to years.
          Of course this won't happen if you use vision aids like glasses and it'll get worse if you use those in front of your screen.
          However, if you didn't have myopia you would get constant headaches from screen usage.
          So, no, it's not a disease, just a maladaptation.

          >protective factor
          Says nothing about reverting or curing effects.

            Neither cancer. Nobody is reverting or "curing" cancer.
            Surgery and chemotherapy destroys those cells or avoid their multiplication for long enough.

      It's because of poorly grown orbits, which is from lead deficiency.

        is this why myopia correlates with IQ

          Sort of. The tests are made to give very high scores to schizos.

          no one knows exactly why the eye keeps growing past emmetropization, so it's hard to find a cure just by chance. i think the most widely accepted theory is about peripheral image shells, but it doesnt explain it all since going outside for 20hours a week reduces myopia onset (doesnt help with preventing progression) significantly.

          It probably has the opposite direction of cause and effect, as underfed people lack energy, suffer more from elements and the brain damage often comes before the myopia, so they may get easily lost or confused outside.

        It's a built-in microscope to see small things. Severe myopia can often function as a 3x multiplier for seeing fine details. Professional israeliteelers, for example, can see diamonds about 5-10 cm from their eyes, meaning they can see certain engravings ordinary men would need a magnifying glass to see. Clear distant vision isn't needed

    glasses industry makes too much money off of it.

    actual cause is a genetically modified polio virus that attacks the eyes

      One hypothesis is that myopia is caused by a lack of blue light, and that outdoor activities help not so much by looking at distant objects as the presence of a bright blue sky.
