Myopia, or near-sightedness, can have many repercussions for children, such as difficulty seeing the blackboard at school, leading to a drop in academic performance. Their outdoor activities may also be limited.
It's important to note that myopia in children can progress over time, meaning their vision can continue to deteriorate. Therefore, diagnosing and treating myopia in children as early as possible is essential to minimize its long-term repercussions.
Your child's future starts today.
Children lead busy, active lives. Whether they're playing pretend, riding bikes with friends or learning new things at school, myopia (blurred distance vision) can be a handicap to participating in their favourite activities. As they grow older, myopia evolves and can become more pronounced with age.
