In this video, Dr. Shefali Miglani discusses what parents can do at home right now to help slow down their child’s myopia progression.
1. Define a study area for your child.
2. Spend at least 45 minutes outdoors a day.
3. Follow the 20/20/20 rule.
4. Ensure proper posture and lighting
5. Limit screen time.
6. Use larger screens.
It is important to remember that halting the myopia progression is the goal, since it can’t be reversed. Practicing these changes along with the appropriate therapy decided by you and your doctor will contribute fundamentally to stopping their myopia from progressing.
Remember that you play an important role in shifting these behaviors and making a difference.
