Did you know that apart from our tasty local delights, Singapore is also known for the “Myopic Capital of the World”?
Statistics from Ministry of Health revealed that 65% of our children are myopic by Primary 6 and it is projected that by 2050, more than 80% of Singaporean adults will be myopic.
Children’s development will be greatly impacted when myopia progression is not taken under control. With 80% of learning happens through visual system, it is utmost important for parents to place extra care in their eye health during their growing years.
While myopia cannot be reversed, but it can be slowed down if early intervention is administered. At Lifetime Vision Care, we have surgical-free and non-invasive myopia control programs for children that best fits the child’s visual needs.
Slow Down Myopia.
Protect Your Child’s Vision.
What Is Childhood Myopia?
Myopia, or short-sightedness, is a common condition in which you can see near objects but far objects appear to be blurry. Myopia occurs when the eyeball length or axial length is longer than normal.
Childhood myopia rises sharply between the age of 5 to 15 years old and will stabilize when they reach their early adulthood.
Why does it matter for parents?
The earlier the onset of myopia in children, the higher the risk of developing high myopia in their adulthood. Being high myopic can lead to serious sight-threatening complications such as glaucoma, retina detachment and macular degeneration which eventually cause irreversible damage to our eyesight.
What are the available myopia control methods?
At Lifetime Vision Care, we have the latest myopia control technologies in the option of specialty lenses, soft contact lenses and Orthokeratology (Ortho-K).
Can I choose a specific myopia control method for my child?
We recognize that every child’s visual health is unique and there is no one size fits all solution when it comes to myopia control for children. Our professional optometrists will conduct a series of eye tests to determine the appropriate myopia control method that is most suitable for your child.
Close monitoring and aftercare is part of our children myopia control program to track the progress and determine the effectiveness of the prescribed method.
