Myopia affects how light focuses. For those with nearsightedness, distant objects appear blurry, while nearby objects remain clear. This condition typically develops during childhood, a crucial time of rapid eye growth, often worsening into the late teen years.

The Rise of Myopia: A Global Concern

Did you know that myopia is on the rise globally? Recent studies indicate that almost 30% of the world's population is myopic. Even more concerning, projections suggest that by 2050, nearly 50% of people worldwide, totaling a staggering 5 billion individuals, will be affected. Premier Eye Center in Shrewsbury is committed to addressing this growing issue through effective myopia management.
