Scientific Research on Myopia Management

The rapid spreading of myopia (nearsightedness) in children is cause for concern, not only to individual parents but to society in general. Scientists have been investigating potential causes and researching possible prevention methodologies.

Currently, myopia management is gradually replacing simple myopia correction. Find here some of the most significant underlying research reports supporting different methods of myopia management.

  • The overuse of digital media in today’s day and age is not without concern, especially for children. While these devices have improved our lives in many ways, certain physical and mental problems can result from overexposure to screens. By following the following measures and tips, you’ll keep your tech-savvy child seeing clearly and feeling healthy.
  • Myopia progression in children dramatically increases the risk of developing serious eye conditions later in life, such as cataracts, retinal detachments, macular degeneration, and glaucoma.
  • Myopia is the most common and rapidly proliferating vision problem in children today. High levels of myopia increase the risk of developing severe sight-threatening eye diseases later in life. Myopia management can slow down or stop myopia progression, thus keeping your child in the safe zone.
  • There are several ways to manage myopia (nearsightedness), but are they appropriate for children with dry eye syndrome? In most cases, the answer is ‘yes.’
  • Studies have shown that engaging in near work increases a child’s odds of developing myopia (nearsightedness). Read on to learn what you can do to help preserve your child’s future eye health and vision.
  • Myopia (nearsightedness) causes far-away objects to appear blurry and raises the risk of developing serious eye diseases in adulthood. Myopia management helps slow and sometimes even halt the progression of myopia in children, so the sooner your child starts myopia management, the better the outcome.
