Can shortsightedness be cured permanently?
My son is 10 years old. He always complains about a frequent headache. He sits too close to the television. I often warn him not to sit too close to the television as it might harm his eyes. I have noticed that he holds his book very close to his eyes while reading. Yesterday, he complained again about a headache. He told me that he finds it difficult to read what is written on the blackboard. I felt sorry for him. I took him to the general practitioner. After the checkup, the doctor told that my son has got shortsightedness. The doctor suggested taking him to an opthamologist in Honolulu ( http://jenkinseyecare.com/why-jenkins/our-doctors/ ). I am planning to take him there tomorrow. Can shortsightedness be cured permanently? How is shortsightedness treated in children? Please do share your views and suggestions. Any advice is also highly appreciated.
Hope this helps and this wasnt just spam.
