To lessen the burden on your children’s eyes, it is important to always maintain good sitting postures, and do not lean too near to the screen.
Avoid using electronics such as computers and smartphones a hour or so before bedtime. The screen brightness and mind stimulation usually causes lack of sleep. Using a smartphone while lying down is also advised against.
Playing outdoors means looking at far distances, which doesn’t strain the eyes. It is much healthier for the eyes than using smartphone and tablets indoors, and is great for preventing myopia from worsening .
Children who do not currently require spectacles may develop myopia as they age. It is advised to visit the optometrist at least once every half a year for regular eye checks.
Avoid placing eyewear lens-side down as it can cause scratches. When not in use, always return the eyewear to the case.

- Q. Why does myopia worsen?
- The reason for myopia worsening is not clearly known. One possible reason is viewing from near distances over periods of time, which strains the eyes and leads to worse myopia in children.For this reason, parents should limit the time children can spend looking at electronic devices, and encourage them to rest their eyes frequently.
- Q. What kinds of food and supplements should my child take to prevent myopia from worsening?
