Myopia is a common disorder with a large public
health impact. Although 12 myopia loci have been reported
and heterogeneity for high myopia loci have been demonstrated,
replication of high-myopia loci with a common myopia
phenotype has not been successful. This study reports the
successful replication of MYP12 in three large, multigenerational
families with autosomal dominant (AD) common myopia
(spherical equivalent [SphE] 0.50 D).
