Study shows myopia (short sightedness) prevalence in children in the UK has more than doubled in the last 50 years

Evidence from all over the world suggests that myopia is increasing in prevalence.

Nearly one in five teenagers in the UK are myopic. Myopia is most likely to occur between six and 13 years of age.

Children with one myopic parent are almost three times more likely to be myopic by age 13 than a child without a myopic parent. This increases to over seven times when both parents are myopes.

Myopia is more than twice as prevalent among UK children now than in the 1960s.

Parents who are myopic should be told to expect myopia in their children and ensure they get their children’s eyes tested regularly in the early years of primary school.

The current evidence-base suggests that more time spent on near vision tasks (for example, studying or screen time) does not have a strong influence on myopia development. However, an active lifestyle, particularly involving spending time outdoors does appear to be helpful in preventing myopia or slowing its progression. This is a public health message that could be beneficial, not only for children’s eyes, but for their general health.
