During the COVID-19 pandemic, children’s increased use of digital products to assist their learning is likely to exacerbate the progression of myopia. Patients with higher myopia are more likely to suffer from eye diseases in the long run, such as glaucoma, cataract, macular degeneration, etc.
The golden period for myopia control is between the ages of 6-12 years old2. The earlier the detection and management, the better. Regular eye examinations and early management of myopia can effectively slow down the progression of myopia, which helps children build confidence, have a happy childhood and reach their full potential.
