The prevalence of myopia is increasing with
every generation. In most cases, nearsightedness is just a minor
inconvenience and poses little or no threat to eye health. Other
times, myopia can be so progressive and severe it can be considered
a degenerative condition. Children who develop myopia (nearsightedness) have a continual
progression of their myopia throughout childhood and adolescence.
Left untreated more severe long-term risks like cataracts, glaucoma
or retinal detachment can occur. The goal of myopia control is to
slow down the progression of myopia in your child. Keeping it from
developing higher levels of nearsightedness that are associated
with developing serious eye problems, can also change the impact
Myopia has on your child's life.
