Myopia: What is it?
Myopia, also called short-sightedness, is the eye condition where objects
nearby or a short distance away are clear but objects that are far away are blurred. It is caused by the eye being slightly too long or too powerful. Most people who have myopia don’t have any complications and will only ever need spectacles / contact lenses to make their vision sharper.
Why do we need myopia control?
“Myopia is one of the most common eye disorders in the world and its prevalence is increasing. We can’t make the eyeball shorter without cutting part of it off. So, our goal is to stop it getting worse or in the case of a child, stop it even starting.Those who have myopia also have an increased risk of developing other eye conditions.
