Myopia (nearsightedness) is still a major research and discussion topic worldwide. Links have been made that increased digital device screen time can have an increased risk of myopia in our population. A research study by Josh Foreman, Arief Tjitra Salim, et al. was conducted to review the literature of more than 3000 studies on the association between digital smart device use and myopia in children and young adults (aged 3 months to 33 years). An article on this study was written by Dwight Akerman, OD, MBA, FAAO, FBCLA.
