Heredity is one of the factors. If both parents are myopic, there children are likely myopic too. Environmental factors such as spending too much time, or too close, in near works can also cause a higher risk of getting myopia.
Options for myopia control
- Myopia control spectacle lenses
- Soft myopia control contact lenses
- Eye drops (Atropine, prescribed by doctors)
Effectiveness of each myopia control option may vary from individuals. Please consult optometrists to select the suitable myopia management plans.
