What is Myopia?
Myopia can have a strong impact on your child’s development and make their eyes more susceptible to future diseases. Family Vision Optical’s myopia management plans are an effective way of slowing the condition’s progression and safeguarding your child’s vision.
Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, occurs when the eye elongates. This causes distant objects to appear blurry and can result in headaches and eye strain. Myopia emerges during childhood and continues to worsen with age and continues to progress into our twenties due to increased screen time. The specific cause of myopia is unknown, but factors like excessive screen use and spending too much time indoors have been linked to a child’s risk of developing myopia. If left unaddressed, it has the potential to significantly affect your child’s ocular health and disease development later in life. Fortunately, advancements in eye health now offer myopia treatment choices that can yield lifelong health advantages.
