Your kids should grow stronger, not their myopia.


Myopia is a refractive condition where the light is focused in front of the retina because the eye is “too long” hence “long vision” is blurry, in short, the patient is nearsighted.

Myopia is becoming a public health concern, affecting more than 40% of Americans. This number is increasing at an alarming rate, especially among school-age children.

Myopia can worsen as your child’s eyes continue to grow.

The reason objects are blurry in the distance with nearsightedness is because the eye becomes longer as the child grows.

Myopic children have higher chances to develop high myopia (a severe form of myopia) at the adult age. Patients with high myopia are prone to develop sight-threatening eye conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, retinal detachment, and macular degeneration.


When a patient is diagnosed with a cataract it signifies that the lens of the eye is becoming cloudy. Cataracts often develop slowly over the years. The main symptoms are blurry vision, fuzzy vision, and/or sensitivity to bright light.


Glaucoma is a very common group of eye conditions that damages the eye’s optic nerve. It affects millions of Americans. It gets worse over the years. It is a leading cause of blindness that can be prevented with early treatments.

Retinal detachment

Retinal detachment is a severe ocular emergency where the thin layer of tissue, the retina, pulls away from its normal position. Patients can experience sudden flashes of light and dark spots in their field of vision. If these symptoms appear, contact an ophthalmologist.

Macular degeneration

Macular degeneration is the leading cause of blindness, affecting more than 10 million Americans, more than glaucoma and cataracts combined. This ocular condition is caused by the deterioration of the central portion of the Retina, known as the macula.
