Myopia Control Lenses
Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a refractive error that affects the eyes’ ability to focus on distant objects. It is a common condition that affects millions of people worldwide, and its prevalence is increasing rapidly, especially in children. If left untreated, myopia can lead to serious eye problems such as retinal detachment, glaucoma, and cataracts.
Myopia is a growing health problem in children given the modern lifestyle changes. Children who develop myopia early in life are at an increased risk of developing more serious visual problems later in life. Earlier diagnosis of myopia and its management can greatly reduce its impacts in adulthood.
Myopia control lenses are specially designed lenses that aim to slow down the progression of myopia in children. These lenses work by controlling the peripheral defocus that can contribute to the development of myopia.
At Canadian Glasses, we offer a number of reputable options for Myopia management optical lenses such as Essilor Stellest, Hoya MiyoSmart, and MyoFit by Shapers.
