Singapore is the myopia capital of the world with a whopping 85% prevalence rate for short-sightedness. Most parents think that wearing spectacles, or undergoing LASIK and other forms of refractive surgery will solve the issue of myopia. The truth is myopia develops due to the adaptive nature of one’s eye balls, which tend to grow longer towards the back of the eyes (axial elongation) to accommodate intense near-vision. Once myopia occurs, it’s irreversible as the shape of our eyes can only grow longer but cannot retract to become shorter.
