MYOPIA MANAGEMENT – Controlling progressive eye elongation in children
We explore just how Vision Scientists, the optical industry and eye care practitioners are putting their research, resources and knowledge together to develop a variety of therapies that have been proven to slow eye growth in children, adolescents, and young adults.
Embedded with key Vision Scientists for several years, the filmmaker offers front-row seating to on-going research using ingenious and elegant experiments to asertain what it is about our environment that’s causing millions of children to become myopic.
Around the world, nearsighted adults are going blind as the direct result of their eyes growing too fast, becoming too elongated as children. People with premature cataracts, glaucoma, myopic macular degeneration and retinal detachment recount revealing and poignant stories of life challenges brought on by sudden and unexpected loss of sight.
