High myopia, cataract and gene

Recommended Posts

For high myopia associated cataract that gradually developed after age 45, is there any study about this relationship with gene?

I am interested in the timely expression of certain disease during our life span such as Huntington's disease due to the excessive repetition of HTT gene sequence. The more the repetition exceeds the normal level, the earlier the disease will occur. Are there other timely expressed diseases caused by repetition of gene sequence? Is high myopia associated cataract be one of these diseases?
