Myopia in Children is Increasing as Technology Use Increases.

Eye Exams

Is your child's myopia, or short-sightedness worsening?

Online learning and more screen time, can negatively affect your child’s eyes causing digital eye strain or myopia.

Myopia impacts your child’s school performance, learning, and athletics and can potentially lead to serious sight-robbing eye diseases later in life. These include macular degeneration, glaucoma, cataracts and retinal detachment.

Find out how to reduce digital eye strain in your child by scheduling an appointment at Envision Ghent Optometry.

Offer your child a better quality of life, for today and for the future.
