Take Control of Myopia Today

Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is one of the most common refractive errors affecting patients around the world. It can develop early in childhood and typically worsens with age. Studies suggest that myopia currently affects over 40% of Americans, and that number continues to grow.

While there is no cure for myopia, Eyes Now offers its patients a number of ways to help slow the progression.

Please book an appointment with us today so we can help you take steps towards safeguarding your vision from myopia.

An Introduction to Myopia

Myopia is a refractive error that causes blurry distance vision. Myopia occurs when the shape of the eye is too long, causing light that enters the eye to focus in front of the retina instead of on it.

As the eye continues to grow throughout childhood, the condition can be exacerbated and cause worse vision over time. Patients with myopia can enjoy clear vision by wearing prescription glasses or contact lenses, though patients with severe myopia may want to consider surgical options.

Untreated myopia can also cause headaches and ocular discomfort, and can impact your ability to focus at work or school.

Myopia in Children

Myopia often develops during childhood – almost 1 in 4 parents in America have a child with myopia. Untreated myopia has been linked to poor performance in school, a shortened attention span, and frequent headaches.

Some studies have suggested that using digital devices like smartphones, televisions, and tablets for long, uninterrupted periods may intensify the symptoms of myopia.

Early detection of myopia is crucial to slowing its progression, and the best way to catch it is by bringing your child to the optometrist regularly. Myopia can be easily diagnosed during a comprehensive eye exam, and controlling myopia at an early age can help keep your child’s prescription low.

Myopia Control at Eyes Now

Depending on the severity of your myopia, your optometrist may prescribe atropine eye drops to help slow the progression. Speak with your optometrist to see if atropine eye drops are a good choice for you.

Multifocal contact lenses allow patients to enjoy clear vision at all distances, and may help slow the progression of myopia.

Progressive multifocal lenses for glasses correct both your near vision and your distant vision. This may help slow myopia as it lessens the amount of strain on your eyes while doing close-up work.
