Focusing on Your Child’s Vision, Now and In the Future
Myopic progression is when prescriptions increase over time, and higher prescriptions have been linked to sight-threatening conditions later in life such as glaucoma, retinal detachment, and myopic maculopathy.2
Generally, myopia first occurs in school-age children and progresses until about age 203.
According to the American Optometric Association, 34% of children ages 12-17 are myopic. This is due in part to changing lifestyles, with children spending less time outdoors and more time focusing on close objects like digital screens.
