Myopia or Nearsightedness Treatment with Vision Therapy
Myopia commonly occurs in adults, but one shouldn’t be surprised to learn that his or her child is diagnosed with Myopia at the age of 5. Myopia or nearsightedness is the inability of the child or adult to view or see clearly images at a distance.
Nearsightedness isn’t largely associated with genetics due to the fact that old men and women aged 50 and above have to deal with this particular vision problem.
It is favorably better to seek help from an Ophthalmologist regarding nearsightedness as soon as possible since it has been identified that more young men and women below the age of 40 are highly diagnosed with the problem
Myopia Signs & Symptoms
People with Myopia commonly find it difficult to read road signs that are at a distance. Other symptoms include;

Nearsightedness in Children & Adults (The Root)
Nearsightedness in children may occur as a result of early engagement in reading activities or as a genetic problem. In adults, straining the eyes while reading and over using the computers yet less sleep can result in nearsightedness.

Treating Myopia / Nearsightedness
As opposed to the alternative treatment options like surgery, eyeglasses, and contacts, Myopia treatment in India is best done with Vision therapy. Though this may not apply to all patients, vision therapy is the safest way of treating the eye disorder in children

Looking at Myopia / Nearsightedness

Those with a degenerative condition (Degenerative Myopia) are at the risk of cataracts
