    WHAT IS MYOPIA?

    A person with myopia can see clearly close up – when reading a book or looking at a phone – but objects look fuzzy at a distance – like the whiteboard in school, the television or when driving. Myopia is often referred to as short-sighted or near–sighted.

    Myopia in children tends to worsen as the child ages and grows. The younger a child develops myopia, the higher his/her prescription may end up.

    Higher levels of myopia are associated with higher risks of eye disease such as myopic maculopathy, retinal detachment, glaucoma, and cataracts later in life. Myopia has been described as the biggest threat to eye health of the 21st century!

    So what can be done
    to manage myopia?

    All children should be assessed regularly, particularly if one or both parents are myopic. We have methods of predicting and tracking which children may end up myopic, using Scotland’s first Oculus Myopia Master to measure and track axial length. We can then offer proven methods to slow progression of myopia and reduce its risks.
