Myopia Control Spectacles & Contact Lenses Singapore

Myopia, commonly known as short-sightedness or near-sightedness, occurs when the eyeball is too long, or the cornea is too curved. This causes light to focus in front of the retina, instead of focusing directly on it. Nearby objects can be seen clearly, but the vision is blurred when viewing objects in the distance.

Myopia Contact Lenses & Controlling Degree Spectacles Singapore

You can recognise it when your child complains about eye strain or if they squint. The progression of myopia can lead to high myopia and, in turn, increase the risk of other eye problems in future such as glaucoma.

For myopic children, especially, it is essential that they get the best treatment for their eyes through early intervention. The prevalence of myopia progression is an increasing problem that highlights the need for myopia control in the form of corrective lenses, not just in Singapore but also globally.

Aside from choosing the right myopia control solution, there are many ways you can contribute to your child’s eye health. Here are some recommendations which will help manage the progression of myopia.

Support outdoor activities
Studies show that children who are active outdoors have a lower risk and progression of myopia. Spending a minimum of 2 to 3 hours a day outdoors is thus recommended.

Remember UV protection
Wear a cap and protect your child’s eyes from UV light when participating in outdoor activities.

Keep digital devices at a distance
Proper distance from digital devices and an upright body posture are good for their backs and eyes.

Ensure your child takes breaks
When partaking in close-distanced visual tasks, such as reading and computing, it is important to take a break after continuous strained work. This break should be used to look at objects as far away as possible.

Provide healthy food
Nutrients influence the proper development of the visual system.

Let them get enough sleep
Sleep is important for the restoration of body and neural energy. Too little sleep leads to excessive fatigue and places stress on all daily activities, including vision.

Turn on the light
Good lighting is essential for all activities, from reading to learning to playing. Always make sure that your child is in a well-lit area; natural light is especially recommended.
