or shortsightedness is common in children. Usually with the growth of the child the number of the glasses also increases. When the growth stops which usually is around 18 years of age the number also stops. This is not a strict rule, in some patients with the use of glasses there is only a minimal change in the number.
There are no special medications or diet which can stop the number.
Once the number is stable for an year after 18 years of age then the patient can consider about the laser treatment
by which glasses can be removed.
