Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a common refractive error that causes blurry vision in the distance. It is becoming increasingly prevalent, with research suggesting that half of the world’s population could be myopic by 2050.
Myopia can result in several ocular and functional complications. Some pathological conditions caused by myopia include cataracts, glaucoma, myopic macular degeneration, and retinal detachment. In terms of functionality, it may also become difficult to do your daily tasks without glasses and contact lenses and you may need to spend more on your lenses.
A few ways to reduce myopia progression includes:
- Behavioral modifications
- Eye drops
- Customized glasses
- Contact lenses
At our clinic, we provide a comprehensive myopia control consultation that includes a thorough eye exam, a discussion of your visual needs, and an assessment of your lifestyle factors that may affect myopia progression. Based on the results, we will recommend a personalized treatment plan that suits your individual needs.
We are proud to offer MiSight soft contact lenses and MiyoSmart lenses.
