Guest: Susan Feeney, DNP, FNP-BC, NP-CMusic Credit: Richard Onorato
The COVID pandemic and the precautionary changes in behavior put into practice are creating an immeasurable cost in ways that are still being identified – social isolation, stresses on mental health, as well as neglect of chronic disease management – to name a few. In a recent study out of China, it was found that 6, 7 and 8-year-olds had a significant increase in myopia associated with the lockdown and school closures. This level of myopia places these children at much greater risk of poor vision in adulthood. Join us as we discuss these findings and how they may impact prevention strategies and assessment parameters in children during and after the pandemic.
