Myopia is a condition where distance vision is blurry. This condition is commonly called being nearsighted, and the most common treatment is glasses for distances. Due to the nature of the world around us, myopia in children has been increasing. Computers and electronic devices can cause added strain on the eyes leading to the progression of myopia. This would mean that over time a stronger glasses prescription would be required to fully correct the vision.
As the eye becomes more myopic, changes occur to the length of the eye. This increases the risk for various eye conditions, such as retinal detachments, retinal holes, and glaucoma.
There are a variety of treatments available to slow the progression of myopia.
