Jason Higginbotham is proud to be the managing editor of MyopiaFocus.org.

As an optometrist, Jason is acutely aware of the issues facing younger generations. Our changing lifestyles are having detrimental effects on the health of our children. Progressive myopia is one of the most concerning issues that appears to be linked to children spending much less time outdoors, doing much more close, focused work and spending too much time using bright, high-contrast display screens such as smartphones and laptops, for example.
