Myopia Control in Quebec & Ontario

Focus On Myopia Management

Myopia impacts about 30% of Canadians. It’s also known as nearsightedness. If you have myopia, you can likely see close objects clearly but you might struggle to see objects in the distance.

Nearsightedness usually begins in childhood, so it’s vital for your child to have annual comprehensive eye exams before myopia advances too much.

We test for myopia, and though we can control it, the only way to correct it is with laser eye surgery. If you’re having trouble seeing faraway objects, book an appointment now to learn more about the ways we can control and manage your myopia.

Why Does Myopia Develop?

If your eye is too long or your cornea is too curved, light won’t focus properly on the retina. If the light entering the eye isn’t properly focused, distant objects might appear blurry.

Myopia can develop as children’s eyes grow. Sometimes it happens spontaneously; other times it’s a hereditary condition.

While vision usually stabilizes around age 20, it’s important to control myopia in children to prevent high myopia. People with high myopia are at a higher risk of retinal detachment, macular degeneration, cataracts, and open-angle glaucoma, all of which can cause blindness.

How Can We Control Myopia?

Glasses or contact lenses are common tools in the myopia management toolbox. At LMC Optometry, we offer MiSight contact lenses and MiyoSmart eyeglass lenses.

MiSight Contact Lenses

MiSight contact lenses are specially made for children with myopia. These soft, daily contact lenses have been shown to slow myopia progression in some children by up to 59%.

The lenses use a principle called peripheral defocus. They adjust your child’s peripheral vision and bend light to a point just in front of their retina, which prevents the eyes from growing longer and slows myopia down.

MiyoSmart lenses also use peripheral defocus to slow down myopia progression. Because they’re eyeglass lenses rather than contacts, they might be more appealing to kids and easier to wear.

Studies show that MiyoSmart lenses reduce myopia progression by 60%. These lenses are suitable for kids of all ages.
