Why Should I Be Concerned About Myopia?
Myopia is a very serious concern for the long term health of your child’s eyes and is on track to become one of the leading causes of irreversible blindness worldwide. Recently eye doctors shifted from providing new glasses every year as myopia progresses to taking a more serious approach to slowing down the myopia by treating the underlying causes and not just the symptoms.
Research has shown conclusively that the higher your child’s myopia becomes, the more at risk they are for some of the most debilitating eye diseases. People that have moderate to high myopia are at increased risk for:
- Almost a 300% increase in glaucoma.
- A 1000% increase in retinal detachment.
- Choroidal neovascularization which is a common cause for Macular Degeneration
- Retinal tears
- Retinal Holes
