Nearsightedness, known as myopia, makes it difficult to see objects far away. It is caused when the light entering the eye is focused in front of the retina instead of on it. This typically occurs when the eyeball is elongated, which is common in children who are growing quickly. Changes in your child’s vision may happen often, so it is important for them to continue to visit the eye doctor regularly to update their prescriptions for their glasses or contacts.
