Myopia is a complex eye condition, with both genetics and environmental risk factors contributing to its development. It is estimated that half of the world’s population will have myopia by 2050. In Singapore alone, more than 50% of 9-year olds are reported to have myopia, with direct costs of myopia estimated to cost 1 billion dollars annually. While there are current interventions to manage myopia, the opportunity lies in developing preventative screening and early intervention mechanisms that help reduce or delay the onset of myopia.
