Short-sightedness is a growing and common problem around the world, and British researchers are in the labs working on eye drop developments to prevent this ever-growing issue.

Researchers have found a number of problems associated with eye-growth, and the treatment in development is to prevent the eyeball from distorting in order to maintain 20-20 vision. These eye drop developments may be the answer to wipe out all eyeglasses.

Implications - While the eyedrops are still being tested, scientists claim that children should be spending more time outdoors, because eyes are able to focus on distant objects. Scientists also believe that sunlight may help to maintain healthy eyesight. Even if one does need to get glasses in the time being, at least there are many fashionable options!
