What Is Myopia?

Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a common vision condition where distant objects appear blurry while close ones are clear. It occurs due to the eye’s shape causing light rays to bend (refract) incorrectly, focusing images in front of the retina instead of on it.

Who is at Risk for Myopia?

Several factors can increase the likelihood of developing myopia, including genetics (if one or both parents are myopic), prolonged activities that require close focus, excessive screen time, a less hyperopic prescription at a young age, and certain ethnicities. At The Eye Site, we assess these risk factors to provide targeted myopia management and preventive strategies.

Why Is Myopia Management Important?

Effective myopia management is crucial as it can slow down the progression of myopia, reducing the risk of developing severe eye problems in the future, such as retinal detachment, glaucoma, and macular degeneration.

Our Myopia Treatments

Our clinic offers a range of myopia treatments, including Ortho-K (Orthokeratology) lenses, atropine eye drops, and multifocal contact lenses, each customized to suit the specific needs and lifestyle of our patients.

Benefits of Myopia Management

Myopia management can significantly decrease the progression of myopia, leading to better vision in the long term, reducing the need for stronger prescription lenses, and lowering the risk of eye diseases associated with high myopia.
