What is Myopia?

Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a refractive error that occurs when light doesn’t pass through the eye correctly. Typically, light enters the eye through the cornea and pupil, passing through the lens and eventually hitting the retina at the back of the eye. The retina transmits light information to the brain through the optic nerve, which the brain interprets as an image.

When light refracts incorrectly due to myopia, it lands in front of the retina instead of directly on it. This error can cause blurred vision at far distances, as well as:

  • Frequent eye rubbing
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Headaches & eye strain
  • Excessive blinking
  • Squinting to focus

As your child’s eyes grow, myopia can progress, worsening over time. It’s critical to provide your child with the necessary tools to slow myopia progression and prevent more severe eye problems later in life.

How Myopia Control Works

Early intervention to manage myopia can improve visual function and impact your child’s ability to learn and grow naturally. Our myopia control methods are personalized to your child’s unique situation, and we work closely with you and your child to ensure treatments are as effective as possible.

MiSight 1 Day Soft Contact Lens

MiSight 1 Day are a leading-edge soft contact lens designed to help your child resist focusing and prevent myopia progression. These contact lenses have been shown to slow myopia progression by an average of 59%.

Soft multifocal contact lenses have 2 parts for focusing light. Shaped like a bullseye, the center of the lens corrects myopia so your child’s vision is clear at a distance. The outer part of the lens focuses peripheral light in front the retina to help slow myopia.

SpecialEyes contact lenses are designed for use when your child has hard-to-fit eyes that require a little more attention than regular contact lenses can provide. These contact lenses account for irregularly-shaped corneas and other issues that may be causing your child’s myopia.

Orthokeratology, or ortho-k, uses hard contact lenses to reshape your child’s cornea gently overnight. After putting them on before bed and wearing them while they sleep, the goal is that your child will have clear sight throughout the day so they can learn and play effectively.
