Another issue is cataracts. Unfortunately, this problem is relevant for more than 30% of the US citizens. It does not matter what the age of the patient is as every person has equal risks of facing myopia sooner or later. It means the individual gets nearsighted. However, school-aged kids are the first citizens to be diagnosed with this disorder. In the adolescents, the problem usually progresses due to the increased amount of time spent in front of the monitors and TV screens. There is nothing to worry about in most cases as myopia stabilizes in adulthood.
