Research Shows Myopia Has Doubled over the Last 50 Years. Learn More at Optegra's Open Evening in Yorkshire on September 7, 2017


Guildford, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/06/2017 -- Research has shown that Myopia (short-sightedness) has doubled over the last 50 years. The main reasons attributing to this dramatic increase is poor lifestyle choices and greater dependency on technology. Further, children are at an even greater risk to develop myopia since their eyes are still developing and hence have a lower ability to cope with the visual stress and eye strain. As a nation, we suffer from a greater risk of poor eye health and need to do more towards early detection and prevention.
