Why is it important to slow the progression of myopia or short-sightedness?
- As children's eyes grow their myopia increases and their dependence on spectacles increases
- This can reduce the ability of children to participate in sports and other activities
- Increasing myopia can lead to eye health problems in the future such as glaucoma and myopic maculopathy
