Understanding Myopia

Being myopic (also called short-sighted or near-sighted) is such a common condition that it is easy to underappreciate the problem. Easier to understand is the value of our eyesight, and when you start looking at the potential long-term effects of myopia, it is easier to appreciate why it is something you need to know more about. If you're a parent whose child has been diagnosed with myopia, or if they are struggling with their distance vision, MyopiaFocus can help you find out more about myopia, and provides valuable advice and guidance.
