has been classified in many ways.This refractive error
may be low (0 to -3 D), moderate( -3D to -6D) or high( more than -6D). The lower grades of myopia are non pathologic and not generally inherited. This means that they do not necessarily have to be transmitted tfrom the parent. The higher myopias are pathological and are generally familial (transmitted from one or both parents). You mention that you have been diagnosed as a myope at the age of 7 years. If your refractive error now is higher than -6D, then you fall in the high category and the chances of your child having the same are high, more so if your spouse is also a high myope. If your daughter has a refractive error it is firstly imperative that she wear her spectacles at all times since the retina
is in the process of development and needs a clear image to accomplish that.There is no way of knowing how high her refractive error will go and how fast. A rough idea may be obtained only after a series of tests on a yearly basis. Unfortunately, there is no way of halting or reversing the progression of myopia, either medically or surgically or with any alternative medical treatment. The best you can do is have her undergo a routine eye examination so that the refractive error is monitored and change the spectacles when needed so her vision remains normal with correction. Her refractive error will stabilise by 18 years of age when other interventive procedures may be considered. In no part of the world will these be offered to children less than 18 years of age.
