The world has changed drastically over the last 20 years to say the least, from our daily living, to how we shop or even bring up or children; that it only seems natural that the way we prescribe glasses should change accordingly to facilitate our newfound lifestyles
A large portion of what we learn and experience occurs through our eyes but the environment and tasks a child is exposed to on a daily basis strongly influences how their eyes develop. With the exponential increase in the amount of time spent on devices amongst children and the younger generation; it raises the question of what the impact of these lifestyle changes on their eyes and its development is.
With the world rapidly changing especially within the last 12months and the amount of screen time children were exposed to, there has been a noticeable increase in shortsightedness amongst children.
World-wide the prevalence of myopia (short-sightedness) is becoming a serious issue; with an estimation of 50% of the world being myopic by 2050
As practitioners we believe prevention is better than cure and our Ambition for kids is too:
1. Correct myopia – Enabling clear vision in all distances
2. Control myopia – Assist in reducing myopia progression
3. Take care of myopic eyes’ needs
