Dr. Nate was invited to take part in several new media interviews to discuss the link between myopia and screen time and outside time. He joined actress and mother Haylie Duff to talk about these issues with interviewers from around the country.
Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a common disease that gets worse over time and is growing at a rapid rate in children, especially with more time spent on screens and doing near work. But myopia is now treatable, and you can limit the disease's impact on your child’s vision and success by taking action today.
Take your own “Screen Staycation” with your family and ask an eye doctor about new treatment options—beyond conventional glasses and contacts—that can help slow the progression of myopia.
Summer break means kids are spending even more time looking at screens indoors and with school around the corner, this is the perfect time to take action and schedule your children’s comprehensive eye exam and ask about new myopia treatments.
