More & More Children Are Developing Myopia

The experts agree: myopia cases are on the rise.

Numerous studies suggest that more and more people are developing myopia across the globe, and researchers predict that almost half of the world’s population will have some degree of myopia by 2050.

Because myopia commonly develops in school-aged children, early management is essential to preserving their visual quality. Find out how we can help manage your child’s myopia development by booking an appointment today.

Quality Eye Care You Can Count On

Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a refractive error that affects the quality of your distance vision. It generally develops in children, but it can progress into adulthood. Some cases may develop from genetics, but some studies believe that not spending enough time outdoors may contribute to its development.

Myopia occurs when the eye becomes too long or if the cornea’s curve becomes too steep. Light entering the eye will not reach the retina properly when these issues happen, resulting in blurry distance vision.

If uncorrected, myopia may develop into what’s known as “high myopia,” a severe version of the condition. High myopia not only affects visual quality but can also increase the risk of developing open-angle glaucoma, cataracts, and myopic macular degeneration.

MiSight Contact Lenses: Preserving Your Child’s Clarity

Myopia is a widespread refractive error, and there has been plenty of time and research on the issue to help find strategies to manage it.

MiSight contact lenses can help slow down myopia development by 50% in children.

These contacts use a technique known as “peripheral defocusing” to help manage myopia, which focuses peripheral light just in front of the retina. Focusing peripheral light in this way sends a signal to the eye that helps slow down myopia development over time.

The lenses are easy to use, comfortable to wear, and provide clear vision throughout the day.
