You likely already know myopia is a big concern in eye health. Here are some staggering stats behind the fact:
- More than 40 percent of Americans are myopic, a number that is rapidly increasing, especially among school-age children.1
- One in four parents have a child with myopia and about three-quarters of children with myopia were diagnosed between the ages of 3 and 12.2
- Two-thirds of Eye Care Practitioners (ECPs) say the presence of myopia among children in their practice has increased over the past 5-10 years.3
- 81% of ECPs recognize it as one of the biggest problems impacting children’s eyesight today.3
We know the earlier myopia management starts, the better the outcomes regarding the child’s near and long-term eye health. In the U.S., 71% of ECPs say it is absolutely essential to slow the progression of myopia among children ages 8-15 years old.4
