In this video, Dr. Carrie Hartigan gives advice for parents of children with worsening eyes to help with their myopia.
This includes behavioral modifications such as spending more time playing outside instead of being on their electronic devices. Studies have shown that the more time children spend outside, the less their myopia progresses.
The sooner that myopia is treated, the better it will be for the child later on. If their prescription can be kept low and prevented from getting worse, the less likely they will face further complications in the future such as retinal detachment.
