Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is when the eyes can focus up close but make distant objects appear blurry. Myopia usually affects children, particularly those around the ages of 8 - 12, and rates have been on the rise for many years. Currently, around 1 in 3 children are myopic, and this is only expected to increase.
While a child with myopia grows, their eyeball grows with them, lengthening slightly year after year. This repeated change develops the need for high adult prescriptions, which leads to an increased risk of eye damage. In effect, the risk of serious conditions such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, or retinal detachment increases.
