Slowing Down a Progressive Condition
Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a refractive error that affects millions of people around the world. If left untreated, myopia can lead to a number of serious health problems, including an increased risk for glaucoma, cataracts, and retinal detachment.
That’s why it’s so important to receive regular eye exams, so we can diagnose myopia and take steps to control this progressive condition.
There are a number of effective myopia management methods available that can help to slow the progression of myopia and protect your children’s eyesight. So don’t wait—be sure to schedule an appointment today.
Myopia & Childhood Development
Myopia can have a significant impact on quality of life, as it can lead to difficulty in reading and participating in activities like sports. When children cannot see their lessons, they may struggle to learn, and when they can’t see the goalposts, scoring might be challenging!
Sometimes, children with myopia are even misdiagnosed with learning disabilities or behavioral challenges. In reality, they might just be struggling to see.
Myopia control can help preserve your child’s long-term visual health. There are a number of ways to manage myopia, including glasses, contact lenses, and other therapeutics.
Prevention methods can help us slow myopia’s progression. This can be achieved through a combination of measures, such as reducing screen time and increasing outdoor activity. By taking these steps, we can help to prevent the onset of myopia and protect the sight of future generations.
