Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a common eye condition that results in distant objects appearing blurry.
It’s becoming prevalent among children and if left untreated, can lead to serious vision problems like retinal detachment in the future.
Luckily, there are ways to manage myopia and reduce its progression so that your little minimizes their risk of future vision loss. Treatments can include atropine therapy, MiSight® and orthokeratology (Ortho-k).
Early intervention is important for effectively managing myopia in children. This is because the rate of progression is highest in younger children, and how myopic a child is during their childhood determines whether they’ll develop vision-threatening conditions later in life, such as cataracts, glaucoma, and retinal detachment.
By managing myopia early, this reduces the risk of these complications and ensures that children have the best possible vision for their future.
