Latest update from our client, Pediatric Eye Associates about Is Your Child at Risk for Myopia (Nearsightedness)?

Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is common for many children. Myopia is a type of refractive error.

What is a refractive error? They are optical conditions that may prevent the eye from properly focusing on light, resulting in blurred vision. Along with myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism are types of refractive errors.

If you have myopia, you may be concerned your child will have the condition as well. But myopia is not strictly hereditary. There are likely multiple factors that contribute to myopia.

If diagnosed, your child is certainly not alone. By 2050, it is estimated that 50 percent of the world’s population will be myopic.

Children who have myopia as prescribed glasses or contact lenses. Once your child is a young adult, they may be a candidate for LASIK or other refractive surgery procedures.
