The Latest Innovations in Myopia Management

Myopia is a refractive error that affects millions of people worldwide. It occurs when the eye's focusing power is too strong, causing light rays to converge in front of the retina rather than directly on it. This results in blurred distance vision, while near vision remains relatively clear. If left uncorrected, myopia can progress and potentially lead to more serious eye conditions. Therefore, effective myopia management is crucial for maintaining good vision and preventing potential complications.
