Myopia Control in Spectacles
Myopia, also known as near-sightedness and short-sightedness, is an eye disorder where light focuses in front of, instead of on, the retina. As a result, distant objects appear blurry while close objects appear normal. Myopia occurs if the eyeball is too long or the cornea (the clear front cover of the eye) is too curved.
Normal corrective prescription lenses will correct your child's vision but will not prevent the progression of myopia.
