Children Myopia Control
Myopia Control Could Save Your Child From Future Vision Problems
Myopia is a very common visual condition wherein children need glasses to see objects in the distance. It is commonly known as "nearsightedness". This refractive error causes light to focus at a point in front of the retina, making it difficult to see distant objects clearly. Myopia has become more prevalent in children in recent years due to increased time focusing near work, usually a screen, and spending less time outdoors. Childhood myopia tends to get worse over time if goes uncorrected.
Moderate to high levels of myopia, due to the elongation of the eye, increases the risk of retinal detachment, glaucoma, cataract, and macular degeneration. By allowing a child’s prescription to change nonstop, we are putting their future vision at risk.
