A current review of the proposed causes and controls concerning the management of functional myopia is discussed. Nutritional-Disease, Mechanical-Anatomical, Environmental, and Genetic theories are reviewed. Topics concerning the controls of myopia include orthokeratology, vision training, surgery, pharmaceuticals and bifocals. A macroscopic theory of myopia development is presented and the merits of the various methods of control are evaluated.
