Collaboration with the Eye Foundation
The Eye Foundation and CooperVision Specialty EyeCare team up to fight progressive myopia in young people
Eye care specialists are sounding the alarm: severe nearsightedness (myopia) is becoming more common and at an increasingly younger age. The degree of nearsightedness is also becoming more extreme. Children who are nearsighted at an early age are at greater risk for unpleasant eye problems or for becoming visually impaired. As a parent/caregivers, you obviously want to avoid that. Once sight has been lost, it cannot be restored. The Eye Foundation and CooperVision Specialty EyeCare (SEC) are both committed to this and are joining forces.
