Myopic changes in the fundus have been known to have a protective role in vasculopathy. The reduced metabolic demands prevent the progression of vascular disorders in myopic eyes. However, this theory might not be applicable for myopia in retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) babies. An increased retinal surface area in an eye with a longer axial length might aggravate the progression of ROP. We discuss two cases of unilateral progression of ROP in a longer axial length eye.
