Slow the progression of your child’s nearsightedness.
Does your child have difficulty seeing distant objects?
Myopia (nearsightedness) typically starts to develop in childhood and often progresses until about age 20.
Slowing the progression is important because it may reduce the risk of developing serious eye conditions later in life such as cataracts, glaucoma, retinal detachment, and blindness.
There are several treatment options to slow the progression of myopia. Schedule an exam at Family Vision Center P.A. to learn more.
Myopia is on the rise
Nearsightedness is a growing concern in the US and other countries.
It is estimated that by the year 2050, roughly half of the world’s population will be affected by this eye condition.
Many researchers believe the rise can be attributed to more time spent staring at screens and less time outdoors.
