Understanding myopia

A clear look at your child’s nearsightedness.

Myopia is on the rise – in its frequency and its severity.

Girl with recorderThe reason for its escalation has been linked to two factors:

    • Genetics – Kids with one or two myopic parents are more likely to be myopic.
    • Lifestyle – Spending more time on activities like reading or using handheld devices instead of spending time outdoors increases the likelihood of becoming myopic.

WHAT IS MYOPIA?

Myopia is more commonly referred to as 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.

A GROWING CRISIS

In the early 1970s, only 25% of Americans were nearsighted.3 Today, more than 40% of Americans are nearsighted, and that number is increasing at an alarming rate, especially among school-age children.
