WHAT IS MYOPIA?
Myopia = Short-Sightedness
Myopia causes objects further away to be blurrier than objects nearby.
It typically occurs when the eyeball grows too quickly in childhood.
Myopia can rapidly worsen, particularly in younger children, because their eyes are growing at a faster rate.
The prevalence and severity of myopia is growing, it's expected to affect more than 50% of the world's population by 2050.
Myopia usually requires glasses or contact lenses too see details, for instance on a whiteboard or the TV.
Spot the signs of Myopia:
- Tired Eyes
- Regular rubbing of the eyes
- Needing to sit close to screens, such as the TV
- Struggling to see the whiteboard from a distance
