Squinting at the board in school to a rapid jump in their prescription can often mean a progression of myopia (nearsightedness) in kids. Progression of myopia is often linked to excessive near work such as studying or increase use of electronic devices up close and lack of outdoor play. Over time, myopia progression can lead to potentially increase in risk of ocular disease later on in life such as retinal detachment.
Dr. Miglani specializes in working with parents and kids at the Myopia Care Center to manage progression of myopia so that our kids can reduce the risk of serious ocular problems and live a healthy life.
