Your Child's Myopia May Depend on What You Do Now
The percentage of adults and children that develop myopia is increasing sharply. This site is about the science of myopia with the goal of stopping or slowing its progression. Myopia is getting worse around the world, even to the point of being called an epidemic by some. In some parts of Asia, 80% of the girls in high school are myopic. In the United States, myopia has increased 66% in thirty years so that now 42% of people aged 12-54 are myopic. It has become an issue of monumental importance affecting over a billion people around the world and it is getting worse.
Stop my eyes from getting worse
Research is showing that there are methods to slow or prevent the progression of myopia, but the actions work best when the child is younger. Myopic changes are generally permanent; they don't get better with treatment.
Treatment should therefore be designed to prevent the development and progression of myopia and to do that requires eye examinations to start at a young age, approximately five years old for yearly exams. There are no guarantees that any specific treatment will work for an individual person but the lack of early care prevents any potential benefit from starting early.
If you are interested in myopia control and in managing your vision or the vision of a loved one with nearsightedness, please contact Eye Q Optometrist and request an appointment with Dr. Abraham Zlatin. Manhattan (212) 724-8855 / Scarsdale, N.Y. (914) 472-5932
