1 in 2 people will be myopic in 2050, find out how to avoid it
The progression of this vision disorder is phenomenal…
Between 2010 and 2050 the number of cases of myopia could increase by 77%!
In 2010 28% of the world's population was listed as myopic, by 2050 we expect 49.8% of people affected by myopia!
But what is myopia? It is an eye disorder that causes blurred vision from afar (unlike the phenomenon of farsightedness or presbyopia related to aging).
This visual problem affects from an early age and must be corrected as soon as possible.
One of the causes of myopia: Time spent in front of screens
The "modern" way of life in which we live and evolve is one of the causes of these figures.
By spending more time indoors than outdoors, we stimulate our near vision more and we get used to being satisfied with evolving in a close environment!
We can highlight a key figure: 6 hours, this is the average time per person in France spent in front of a screen (computer, television, smartphone, tablet, etc.) an alarming figure that causes many vision problems.
Protect yourself from screens and avoid myopia
Today it has become more than necessary to protect your eyesight from the harmful effects of screens.
Opt for equipment: Computer Glasses help fight against harmful artificial blue light and prolong the good health of our eyes in the long term.
To avoid visual disturbances such as myopia in children, it is important to favor outdoor games as well as walks and reduce exposure in front of screens as much as possible.
From 0 to 15 years old, a child must visit an ophthalmologist at least once a year.
