Help Your Child See a Brighter Future
Cases of myopia, also known as nearsightedness, are increasingly common worldwide. This eye condition affects 25% of Americans, and that number is projected to rise to 50% by 2050.
Myopia causes distant objects to appear blurry and generally manifests during childhood. But your child’s vision doesn’t have to stay that way. Fortunately, myopia can be corrected. If you’re concerned about your child’s vision, please book an appointment with us.
Myopia Management for Children
Early myopia intervention can help your child’s vision now and reduce their lifetime risk of serious eye diseases.
At Blink Eye Care in Phoenix, we specialize in treatments proven to help slow or stop your child’s vision from getting worse, including options that may allow your child to be free of glasses and contact lenses all day.
Researchers believe that the environment kids grow up in today can contribute to the rapid increase in childhood myopia. This includes close distance activities (like reading and device use) and lack of outdoor play.
While glasses and contact lenses compensate for a child’s blurry distance vision, they don’t stop your child’s vision from continuing to deteriorate.
As children grow, myopia often develops as they reach school-age and typically gets worse through school age years.
Why Myopia Matters
Clinical studies show there is more to worry about with myopic eyes than the inconvenience of glasses.
Scientific evidence has proven that myopic children are more vulnerable to a range of sight-threatening diseases and complications in the future.
Myopia is usually caused by an eye growing too long. Children with a low amount of myopia have a 4x greater risk of retinal detachment in their lifetime than children without.
For those with moderate to severe myopia, the risk increases by 10x. Other myopia risks include glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration.
Myopia Can Be Managed
The dangers of myopia, in conjunction with the normal challenges of poor vision, mean it’s important for parents of myopic children to manage the condition as part of your child’s eye health.
The goal of myopia management is to slow or even stop the progression of myopia and reduce its impact on your child’s life. The younger myopia management begins, the more effective the treatment.
