About the speciality

Myopia, also known as nearsightedness or shortsightedness, is a common eye condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It is characterized by blurry vision at distance, while close objects appear clear. This is because the eyeball is too long, causing light to focus in front of the retina, the light-sensitive layer at the back of the eye, instead of directly on it.

Understanding Myopia and Its Impact

Myopia typically begins in childhood and can progress as the individual grows, with most stabilization occurring by the late teens or early adulthood. Factors contributing to the development and progression of myopia include genetics, environmental influences (such as prolonged close-up work or screen time), and lifestyle habits (like limited time spent outdoors). The increasing dependency on digital devices and changes in educational demands are believed to play a significant role in the myopia epidemic.

The Importance of Early Detection and Management

Early detection and management of myopia are crucial in preventing its progression and reducing the risk of developing associated eye conditions. Regular eye examinations are essential for children, especially if there is a family history of myopia or if the child exhibits symptoms such as squinting, headaches, or difficulty seeing distant objects clearly.

Myopia Management Strategies

Advancements in myopia management have led to various treatment options designed to slow down its progression. These include:

- Orthokeratology (Ortho-K): A non-surgical procedure involving specially designed contact lenses worn overnight to temporarily reshape the cornea.

- Multifocal Contact Lenses: Designed to provide clear vision at all distances by altering how light is focused on the retina.

- Low-Dose Atropine Eye Drops: Used to slow the progression of myopia with minimal side effects.

- Lifestyle Adjustments: Encouraging outdoor activities and limiting screen time can also contribute to managing myopia progression.
