Eye Insight: Meet Dr. Xiaoying Zhu, Lead Clinician at University Eye Center’s Myopia Control Clinic

In the 1970s, one in four children had myopia, the medical term for nearsightedness. Fast forward and that number has jumped to 40% of kids—nearly one in two. Studies estimate that by 2050, half of the world’s population will have myopia. Meet Dr. Xiaoying Zhu (OD, MD, PhD), lead clinician at University Eye Center’s Myopia Control Clinic and reach out to (212) 938-4015 or myopia@sunyopt.edu to make an appointment for your nearsighted child.
