It’s Myopia Monday – What is Myopia?
Each Monday, we explore the topic of myopia – what it is, why you should care about it and the treatment options we offer for children who are myopic.
So, what is myopia?
Myopia is the inability to see things clearly unless they’re relatively close to your eyes. Also called nearsightedness or shortsightedness, myopia is the most common vision issue among children and young adults. It occurs when the eye grows too long from front to back, causing light to come to a focus in front of the retina instead of directly on it.
