It’s likely that you know someone with myopia - a family member, friend, or work colleague. But how much do you really know about this progressive eye disease? Some parents expect that simply receiving a pair of glasses for their child is the only way of dealing with the effects of myopia.
Myopia is becoming a widespread eye condition in the world. Many people notice that they are having a problem seeing things at a distance but wait for it to self-resolve. They do not want the hassle of wearing eyeglasses and contact lenses. Ortho-k manages your myopia without wearing eyeglasses and contact lenses during the day.
Myopia, often referred to as nearsightedness, is an eye disease in which the eye elongates, causing light to be focused in front of the retina instead of on the retina’s surface. Essentially, your child’s eye is growing too long.
Kids are spending increasing amounts of time on screens and less time outside playing. This is especially true with the pandemic upheaving our lives and forcing us to stay home for virtual learning or work from home.
Nowadays, it seems everyone is staring at a digital screen for several hours every day. Did you know that doing so can cause a common problem known as digital eyestrain? Do you use a digital device to work, relax, learn, or keep up with daily life? If so, you probably experience several eye and vision problems. Some of these include blurry vision, dry eyes, or even eye pain by the end of the day. Also, your shoulders, neck, and head may ache after prolonged use of a digital device.
