The Facts About Myopia Control
Though nearsightedness seems like a simple concept when explained optically, the question, “What is Myopia?” has to be addressed in a more global sense before we can begin discussing treatments.
Myopia is an adaption of modernity. There is no argument that the prevalence of nearsightedness is much higher today than it was even 30 years ago.1 The rapid increase in prevalence alone answers the nature vs. nurture question. Myopia genes didn’t suddenly come out of hiding and start turning half the population into myopes. But don’t myopic parents have myopic children? Not exactly. Myopic parents have children who are more susceptible to becoming myopic.
