Understanding Myopia and its Impact
Myopia, commonly known as nearsightedness, is a refractive error that causes distant objects to appear blurry while close objects remain clear. It is a prevalent vision condition affecting millions of individuals worldwide, and its prevalence is increasing at an alarming rate. The rise of myopia has been attributed to various factors, including genetics, environmental factors, and lifestyle changes.
The Importance of Myopia Management
Myopia management refers to the range of treatments and strategies aimed at slowing down the progression of myopia. The main objective is to prevent the worsening of myopia and reduce the associated risks of developing sight-threatening complications in the future.
