Advanced Eye Care for Nearsighted Kids

Myopia control is a way to reduce the progression of nearsightedness in children during childhood. This means they can enter adulthood with a lower prescription and avoid potentially serious vision risks associated with high myopia.

Myopia control is as simple as your child wearing specialized glasses or contact lenses, and it can have a major impact on their vision for life.

What Is Myopia Control?

Myopia is nearsightedness, a common refractive error that prevents the eye from bringing distant objects into focus. Myopia control relies on either specially designed multifocal contact lenses or glasses to both correct your child’s vision and halt or slow the growth of the eye that leads to increased nearsightedness.

In addition to intervention, the Canadian Association of Optometrists advises limiting screen time—especially for young children—and encouraging kids to get outside for 90 minutes a day. Both of these actions may have a protective effect against myopia progression.
