Myopia (nearsightedness) is becoming so common in young children that estimates show one in two people across the globe will be nearsighted by 2050.
Myopia increases the risk of future retinal health problems, such as myopic degeneration and retinal detachment, adding to parents’ primary concerns about their child’s ability to see clearly without glasses.
Studies show that regular eye stress and fatigue can accelerate the progress of myopia, so treatments focus on reducing eye strain by making minor changes to the eye’s structure or focusing mechanism.
Dr. Chiu is proud to offer several Myopia Management options to slow the progression of myopia in children.
