Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a common condition affecting almost 30 percent of Americans. Both children and adults can be nearsighted, but myopia is normally first diagnosed in school-aged children. Nearsightedness tends to advance in the teens, as the eye continues to grow during this time. The condition levels off and generally stabilizes in adulthood.
