|Myopia (nearsightedness) is a common vision
condition in which you can see objects near to you
clearly, but objects farther away are blurry. It may
develop gradually or rapidly, often worsening during
childhood and adolescence. Multiple causative factors are
closely linked to the development of Myopia, such as
genetic, reading and close-up works, and environmental
Severe nearsightedness puts you at an increased risk of retinal detachment, glaucoma, cataracts and myopic maculopathy. The tissues in long eyeballs are stretched and thinned, causing tears, inflammation, new blood vessels that are weak and bleed easily, and scarring.
The special spectacle lenses tend to be the most comfortable treatment method for young children.
However, whichever treatment option is used for managing progressive myopia in children, it should be combined with a healthy lifestyle to achieve the desired treatment outcome.
