Why Does My Child's Nearsightedness Need to Be Managed?


Myopia significantly increases the risk of developing sight-threatening eye diseases later in life, such as cataracts, glaucoma, retinal detachment, and macular degeneration. The higher your child’s myopia, the greater the risk.

If you’re concerned about your child’s long-term eye health and vision, contact Richmond Hill Optometric Clinic Myopia Management Center today. We can help.
