Childhood Myopia

Childhood Myopia - What it is

Childhood myopia, also known as short-sightedness or near-sightedness, occurs when distant vision is more blurred compared with near vision. The earlier a child gets myopia, the more likely he will get high myopia as an adult.

Myopia tends to increase rapidly for children between the ages of five to 15 years, and usually stabilises by the early twenties.
