Myopia, or nearsightedness, occurs when light entering the eye does not focus directly on the retina, causing distant objects to appear blurry. This refractive error is typically corrected with glasses and/or contact lenses. In children, monitoring the progression of myopia is imperative. Especially when they show potential signs of developing high levels of nearsightedness. This may require them to wear thick, corrective glasses, and could lead to serious eye problems in the future, such as early cataracts or a detached retina.
