The Hidden Dangers of Ignoring Myopia

In today's digital age, where screens dominate our daily lives, a growing concern has emerged: the rising prevalence of myopia, commonly known as nearsightedness. This visual condition, characterized by the inability to clearly see distant objects, is often brushed aside as a mere inconvenience. However, ignoring the signs and symptoms of myopia can have far-reaching consequences that extend beyond simple vision impairment.

Myopia Awareness Week 2024

Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is the inability for light to focus properly on the retina to form a clear image because the eye is too long. This can cause far away objects to appear blurry. When the eye is too long this can cause the tissue in the back of the eye to stretch and lead to significant ocular health problems. Treatments have been developed to slow the progression of myopia.
