Many children are known to have myopia, nothing to worry.
My advice to your son are
He should wear glassess regularly, during all the time expect during sleeping, taking bath....
Should get eye examination done once in six months to find out changes in refractive error, which is known to occur rapidly in children
should take diet rich in vitamin A like green leafy vegetables...
Thank you
