Is myopia an only genetic condition ?

Some people say not to look at the screen, it causes myopia others say looking at screen has nothing to do with eye power.
Some may be practicing opthomology (maybe?). Others may have myopia
So my question to people who have myopia, was it genetic/hereditary? Or was it caused/worsened due to you looking into screen?

Staring at screens without looking away for a long time can cause myopia but this risk can be prevented by focusing your eyes on something else every 20 mins. Just looking at a screen isn't going to give it to you. The fact that it's a screen isn't even important. It's the length of time staring at something close range. You can actually develop myopia from reading books too without looking up and focussing on something else every now and again.
