Top five myths about myopia

The experience of specialists indicates that the earlier treatment is started, the more likely it is to prevent the progression of myopia and the development of complications in the fundus area since they cause a decrease in visual acuity. In the absence of treatment, it is impossible to predict the course of the disease at all, because in this case, the progression of the disease can go very fast and lead to significant damage to the organ of vision. This can be avoided only if the child is regularly monitored by an ophthalmologist. As evidenced by the experience of specialists at the Clear Eye ophthalmology clinic, the permissible growth gradient of myopia can be no more than half a diopter per year, in such cases, the fundus, as a rule, does not suffer.
