It’s myopia awareness week.

Globally, myopia is a leading cause of avoidable vision loss. By the year 2050, nearly half of the world’s population will be myopic. That is a staggering 5 billion people suffering from potentially preventable vision loss and increased risk of blindness.

The impact of myopia is substantial. It is a lifelong condition that negatively impacts quality of life and increases the risk of other sight-threatening conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, myopic macular degeneration and retinal detachment.

Early intervention is key. Check out this great video about myopia in children.
