What is Myopia?

What Is Myopia?

Myopia, also called nearsightedness, is a common condition where objects in the distance appear blurry. This is because your eye is the wrong shape, and as a result can’t focus light properly onto your eye’s retina.

Myopia continues to progress if left untreated, especially in children whose eyes are still growing. This can even lead to more serious vision issues later in life. While eyeglasses can correct the vision from myopia, they don’t address the underlying issue: the eye is continuing to grow incorrectly.

Signs of Myopia in Children

While myopia can be discovered at almost any age, it’s often found in children between eight and 12 years old. However, not all children know their vision is abnormal, or know how to say it. If your notice any of the following in your child, they could likely benefit from myopia treatment:

  • Complaints of eye strain
  • Frequent headaches
  • Constant squinting
  • Difficulty in school
  • Aversion to physical activity
