Myopia, or nearsightedness, is an eye condition that usually begins in childhood. Children’s eyes grow and develop rapidly, and their sight can worsen with age. If the eyes grow too long or elongate from front to back, it causes images to blur. You may have noticed your child’s optical prescription getting worse each year. As this happens, he or she requires stronger glasses. This is a telltale sign that your child has myopia.
