Visionary Optical are highly skilled at providing gentle, friendly eye care to children of all ages. As caretakers, we always strive to provide the best for our children, and that includes safeguarding their vision. Myopia or near-sightedness causes poor long-distance vision, often developing during childhood and tends to progress over the years. With the increasing use of digital devices and reduced outdoor activities, myopia rates are on the rise.

Myopia progression can lead to stronger prescriptions over time, increasing the risk of eye diseases such as glaucoma and retinal detachment later in life. However,the good news is that myopia control strategies can help slow down its progression.

Being proactive with your children’s eyes is the best prevention:

Get your children’s eyes checked regularly

Limit screen time

Spend more time outdoors
