We live in a very digitally-oriented world, and our children are becoming more acquainted with digital screens, especially owing to recent virtual learning.
You may have noticed that your vision is only blurry when you drive at nighttime, but during the day you feel you see well. There are multiple causes for this, including cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, uncorrected refractive error (do you need glasses?) and most commonly, dry eye disease.
Generally, vision screenings detect overt vision problems such as drastically reduced vision abnormal pupillary light reflexes, leukocoria or eye muscle imbalances.
Myopia is synonymous with near sightedness, meaning you can see at near but have difficulty at the distance without correction. This typically develops at a young age, during childhood, when the body and the eyes are growing.
