The prevalence of myopia is projected to increase from approximately two billion people worldwide in 2010 to almost five billion people in 2050 1, bringing with it near- and long-term health challenges. In fact, the proportion of young people with myopia in the UK has more than doubled over the last 50 years, in those aged between 10–16 years and children are becoming myopic at a younger age2.
