Does additional screen time affect our children’s eyesight?

Patients of all ages are staring at screenings at an all time high.

What kind of impact do you think this is going to have on a children's eyesight, their prescriptions and their eye health long term.

And unfortunately, everything that we do these days has to do with some kind of a digital device. And it starts very early in life.

When I see a toddler installer looking at an iPad, it's very likely to distort, maybe issues later in life is the eyes and myopia.

So accommodation is time outdoors on the plate out, less time in front of any digital device.
