As per WHO prediction, by 2050half the world population will be needing spectacles.
Myopia or Short Sight is soon becoming an epidemic
One of the reasons for increase in short sighted children is more close work and increased used of digital devices
At Shinde Eye Care, we assess the child to see if he/she is prone to short sightedness, counsel the parents, prescribe appropriate activities to reduce the increase in power.
The increase in power can also be controlled by “OrthoK”, a special type of contact lenses for children.
A thorough Myopia work up is done in children and the parents and the child is counselled.
