With myopia management, your child may be able to avoid the use of thick corrective glasses, which may lead to serious eye problems later in life.
If you are the parent to a child suffering from myopia, you must be wondering if there is a way you can cure it or at least, slow the progression of the nearsightedness to prevent the changing prescription and the risks of vision loss that is correlated with medium and high myopia (nearsightedness).
Recent research has started providing answers. Eye care specialists have found that it is possible to control the progression of myopia in children and teenagers.

As of now, we do not have an outright cure for the condition. However, there are ways in which the progression of myopia can be controlled.
