About this event

Did you know 65% of Singapore kids are myopic by age 12?

Myopia a.k.a short-sightedness is a refractive error that you can see clearly at a near distance but blurry at distance. In Singapore, the prevalence of myopia is among the highest in the world, with 65% of kids being myopia by primary 6 (age 12) and 83% when they are young adults. High myopia increases the risk of many eye diseases that are sight-threatening, hence it is important to know how to detect and prevent worsening of myopia.

In October #ExpertChat, Zac the optometrist from I-Vision Optometrist will share the causes and factors contributing to myopia. Learn the 5 different ways to help your child reduce the progression of myopia and prevent eye diseases for your child.
