Parents — especially those who are nearsighted and had to wear glasses throughout childhood — are often concerned about the causes of myopia and whether their children are doomed to being nearsighted, too. If this sounds like you, try not to worry too much. Are your child's eyes getting worse year after year? Some children who develop myopia (nearsightedness) have a continual progression of their myopia throughout the school years, including high school. What You Can Do About Myopia Progression The best thing you can do to help slow the progression of your child's myopia is to schedule annual eye exams so your eye doctor can monitor how much and how fast his or her eyes are changing. Often, children with myopia don't complain about their vision, so be sure to schedule annual exams even if they say their vision seems fine. If your child's eyes are changing rapidly or regularly, listen to our next radio show where will discuss this topic and more. We will offer simple suggestions that can go a long way in reducing your child's dependence on stronger eyeglasses/contact lenses every year.
