Myopia Awareness Week is an annual event that celebrates the importance of myopia management and control. This week-long observance seeks to raise public awareness about the risks associated with myopia, as well as encourage people to take proactive steps towards managing their own vision health.
There are various educational materials available online which provide information on myopia prevention strategies such as time spent outdoors, lifestyle changes, limited screen time and specialized treatment plans. By increasing understanding around this important issue this week, we hope to empower more individuals to make informed decisions regarding their vision health!
This comprehensive graphic provides facts and tips on myopia prevention strategies such as limiting screen time, increasing outdoor activity, and having comprehensive eye exams performed regularly.
