Myopia Management

Today, more than 40% of American's are nearsighted, and that number is increasing at an alarming rate, especially for school aged children.

Studies have led researchers to believe that in today's environment of close distance activities (tablets, phones, reading) and lack of outdoor play is a major contribution to the increase in childhood myopia

What Is Myopia?

Myopia is a common eye condition. It's most frequent symptom is nearsightedness, or the inability to see objects clearly at a distance. The reason objects are blurry in the distance with nearsightedness is because the eye becomes longer as the child grows.

And it's a rapidly growing problem. In the early 1970's, only 25% of Americans were nearsighted. Today, more than 40% of Americans are nearsighted, with that number increasing especially for school-aged children.
