- How it Works
March 16, 2021
According to the NIH, myopia (also called nearsightedness) affects 27% of the population worldwide. It occurs when the eye is longer, front to back, than normal or when the cornea is curved too steeply.
In recent years, myopia has become more common, especially in children. There is research to suggest that an increase in activities with a near-focus (video games, reading, smartphone usage) may be the cause of this trend.
Whatever the reason for the increase in nearsightedness among children, doctors are looking for ways to slow the progression of this irreversible condition. These methods are referred to as myopia control.
There are three methods of myopia control that are used by optometrists and ophthalmologists most often.
