My 11 yr old sons nearsightedness worsens each year. Will it stop getting worse and level with the onset of puberty?

Nearsightedness does not stop getting worse the more grow. Its treatments mainly entail the use of eyeglasses and contact lenses. You need to see an optician as soon as possible.

I was near sided and my eye prescription always changed. I finally got contacts and my sight didn't change as often. I finally had LASIK which is the best thing. Shortly after I had it, I developed diabetes. They do not work on diabetics. If you have diabetes in your family, your son needs to consider LASIK as soon as he is eligible if he is interested. If he is into swimming or sports, it sure is great to have perfect vision.
