When myopia starts to become a problem

Updated: May 3, 2022

For many people, the major problem associated with myopia is trying to remember where they left their glasses. You put them down to do close work on the computer or to read, and then when you need the help of your corrective lenses to watch television or play sport, they aren’t where you remember leaving them.

However, whilst misplacement of glasses might be the major problem for those diagnosed with myopia and up to date corrective lenses, the situation is far different for others. Children with undiagnosed myopia may well be struggling at school, unable to see the whiteboard, or perhaps finding sports challenging. Ultimately, they may start falling behind, developing behavioural problems or becoming isolated from their peers.
