In this video, Dr. Steven Sheiner discusses the causes of myopia and what parents can do to help slow the progression.
Myopia can be the result of too much screen time, an underlying condition called progressive myopia, or maybe both. Myopia puts your child’s vision at high risk later on in life. Although myopia cannot be reversed, it’s progression can be stopped.
Behavior modifications can be practiced such as spending more time playing outdoors and less time on electronic devices. Other clinical strategies like atropine drops, orthokeratology, or soft contact lenses which have been proven to slow down the progression of myopia can be utilized as well.
