When 10-year-old Myles started complaining of headaches and eye strain in early 2020, his parents didn’t think much of it. Kids spend plenty of time in front of screens, they figured. He’ll rest and feel better soon. But after Myles suddenly developed vision loss, his mom, Jennifer, decided to take him in to see Dr. Viraj Shah, a VSP network eye doctor, for an eye exam. To her shock, Dr. Shah uncovered signs of a life-threatening condition—a brain tumor.
