As the results of both environmental and genetic factors, myopia is one of the most popular refractive errors in the world. In recent years, progressive achievements have been made in genome-wide association study (GWAS) of myopia and refractive error. A lot of susceptibility loci and regions have been found, which means the researches on genetic basis of myopia and refractive error entered a new stage. This review summarized the main advances, and indicated the possible directions of genetic studies of myopia and refractive error in the future. (Chin J Ophthalmol, 2016, 52: 794-800).
