How does high myopia affect children?

High myopia is a degenerative eye condition that seriously affects the health of children's eyes. Myopia can run in families, and children with one or both parents who have mid- to high degrees of myopia are more prone to develop high myopia. Children who grow too quickly are also at increased risk for high myopia. High myopia symptoms and conditions can affect children's performance in school. Difficulty seeing the chalkboard, reading text, light sensitivity, and headaches are common complications associated with high myopia in children. This degree of myopia can also affect their ability to participate in sports or activities with their peers. It's important to provide medical, emotional, and mental support to children with high myopia.
