Definition

A form of myopia, a refractive error of the eye, in which parallel rays from a distant object come to focus in front of the retina, vision being better for near objects than for far. MYP26 is characterized by typical tigroid fundus changes commonly seen in early onset high myopia, and an unusual pattern of X-linked female-limited inheritance.
