MyopiaChat.org - myopia explained

Too much indoor time is causing children to become myopic.

Myopia is not just the power of your corrective lenses, it’s the length of the eye. 

Every -1D of myopia increases risk of sight loss condition by 30%.

If caught early your child’s myopia can be slowed down by as much as 50%, meaning 

(a) better sight during their life 
(b) a decreased risk of eye disease later in their life
