Myopia is one of the most common ocular disorders seen in children and young adults. Myopia or short sightedness, it is a type of refractive error, where one is unable to see distant objects when the eye is at rest. It is predicted that 50% of the world population will be myopic by the year 2050, a staggering figure.
Side effects of increasing Myopia
Once Myopia is detected in a child, the spectacle power may increase up to the age of 18 to 20 years. Myopia is associated with various vision threatening conditions like retinal detachment and myopic macular degeneration.
Causes of Myopia
We now know that genetics and environmental factors play an important role in causing myopia. Children with myopic parents have a higher probability of developing myopia. Environmental factors like regular activities in sunshine, healthy diet and good posture for reading helps in good eyesight.
