Eyesapp is an app for MYOPIA prevention and other visual diseases in children by controlling their distance from the screen, time of use and breaks.
According to ophthalmologists, optometrists and pediatrics the main causes of myopia and other visual problems in children is due to the time our children spend in front of the screens as well as the distance between the devices and their eyes.

MYOPIA AND SCREENS
Mobile devices (mobile and tablet) are becoming a key element in everyone's life. As a consequence our eyes spend an important part of the day glued to a screen which has negative effects on our visual health.
Various studies have shown a worrying increase in visual diseases in children and adolescents, especially myopia, which occurs when the eyeball is too long in relation to the focusing power of the cornea and lens of the eye. Light is focused in front of the retina making distant objects appear blurry. This problem is aggravated at developmental ages in which the eyeball is adaptable, if we overexpose our eyes to work at too short a distance they adapt by interpreting myopia as the normal state.
95% of what we learn is through sight. Normally children are not aware of suffering visual problems. Therefore, it is very important to detect if their visual capacity is correct by carrying out periodic examinations and thus avoid weighing down the formative development of the children in their first years of life, which is fundamental for all their later educational stage.
MYOPIA has no cure, therefore it is important to prevent its appearance and control its later development especially in children and adolescents between 5 and 18 years of age by creating healthy digital habits.
