I am having regular check ups now due to -10 diopters with lattice degeneration. Aside from worrying about retinal problems. Why does myopia have to do with anything about macular degeneration? In amboss and other trusted sources, advanced age, family history, smoking are risk factors for macular degeneration but never stated that myopia is a risk factor. So as a high myope, should I really worry about macular problems?
