In a recent study, it was predicted that myopia will affect the vision of almost half of the world’s population by 2050. The condition typically starts during childhood when the eyeball elongates, resulting in difficulty viewing far objects.
Myopia is the most common refractive error in the world. In fact, billions could be affected by this problem by 2050. At Northern Virginia Doctors of Optometry, we believe that promoting understanding of this condition is one way to save your vision.
