Brisbane optometrist and researcher Dr Kate Gifford, PhD, has developed a useful online tool for parents to assess their child's risk of developing myopia. She is recognised as a global expert in myopia and has made valuable contributions to the cause of controlling the worldwide myopia epidemic through her clinical research, and in providing education to practitioners and parents on the importance of myopia control.
Visit Dr Gifford's My Kids Vision website for more information on myopia and a six-question questionnaire to estimate your child's risk of myopia development and progression.
Please note the results of the questionnaire are indicative only and the survey is not designed as a substitute for a comprehensive vision assessment by an eye care professional. Every child is different and risk of myopia progression can vary greatly between individuals due to the multifactorial influences involved.
