Don’t Neglect Your Children’s Vision

As the new school year kicks off, it's prime time to ensure your children are seeing clearly with a comprehensive eye examination from your local Optometrist.

Did you know that 80% of school learning stems from vision?

If a child's sight isn't sharp, it can impact their ability to learn. Often, children won't voice vision complaints because they assume everyone sees as they do.

One prevalent issue is child myopia, affecting over 1/3 of the global population, a number set to surge to 50% by 2050. Myopia, or nearsightedness, blurs distance vision while allowing clear sight up close. It typically arises between ages 7 and 13, during rapid growth phases or when the eyeball grows too swiftly for the child's age.

Myopia in adulthood can lead to serious eye diseases like glaucoma, myopic macular degeneration, cataracts, and retinal detachments. Hence, early detection in children is crucial. Detecting myopia early not only improves their vision but also helps manage and slow its progression.

Treatment often involves glasses, contact lenses, and special eyedrops to correct and decelerate myopia. By addressing myopia promptly, we can enhance children's vision and mitigate future eye health risks.
