Myopia is a current worldwide problem, due to a marked increase in its prevalence, all the more important in the age of monitors and working predominantly indoors. This impacts in particular on visual acuity and thus on quality of life, individual performance, with consequences for the labour market and economic implications for public health services. Consequently, much research is focused on modifying the factors that determine the onset and especially the progression of myopia, using various methods, such as the use of anticholinergic agents, the use of progressive lenses (aerial or contact), orthokeratology, refractive surgery techniques, each of which has varying degrees of effectiveness.

The aim of this paper is to highlight the association between myopia progression and environmental and occupational factors, and to review currently available strategies for reducing myopia progression.
