glasses, when older contact lens, when older still lasik if not like glasses or contacts.

You can do your own research we do not undertand the factors that cause myopia to develop or progress.

It's like trying to stop your child from growing.

In the past bifocals, special exercises, not letting a child read or do near tasks, visual therapy all have NOT been should to be helpful.

Simple myopia is NOT a disease.
