Worried about your child’s vision getting worse?

  • News

Does your child face difficulty reading distant signboards? Are they unable to make out who is waving at them from across the street? Is it impossible for them to see what’s written on the blackboard from the last row of seats?

Approximately 186 million people are currently affected by myopia globally. This figure is estimated to increase to about 200 million by 2050.

Nearsightedness or myopia is a particularly prevalent condition in young people and children and usually starts between 6 and 14. Early myopia treatment will help decrease eye strain in children during their learning years and prevent future sight problems.

MYOPIA: What is it?

Myopia or nearsightedness is a common eye condition in which a person is unable to see distant objects clearly or faces difficulty while reading words from far away distances. Nearsightedness might also be a genetic condition that is passed down to children from their parents. This can make it harder for your child to concentrate at school and to have a carefree experience when playing.

Common symptoms of Myopia

A nearsighted test can help an optometrist evaluate whether you are myopic and guide you on how to treat your nearsightedness. Some common symptoms of myopia that you can keep a check on include:

  • Blurry vision while looking at distant objects
  • The need to squint or partially close your eyelids to see clearly
  • Eyestrain and headaches
  • Excessive blinking
