What is Myopia?

Myopia is a common refractive error that causes your distance vision to be blurry, while your near vision remains relatively clear. Myopia can start during childhood, and usually progresses as a child grows.

Aside from affecting your vision, uncorrected myopia can also cause headaches, ocular discomfort, and even focusing problems.

Your Child & Myopia

Myopia doesn’t just affect adults. 1 in 4 parents in America have a child with myopia.

Myopia can develop early in life, affecting your child’s ability to see in the distance or even focus for long periods. Some research has found that digital devices, including smartphones, tablets, televisions, and computers, can lead to the development of myopia.

While there is no way to completely prevent myopia, the best way to manage and mitigate its symptoms is by making sure your child has regular eye exams. Early detection can help slow down the progression of the condition.

Strategies to Correct Myopia

Glasses are the first line of treatment to correct the symptoms of myopia. Glasses come in all shapes and sizes, and with a variety of lens treatments to help you see the best you can.

For a complete list of all of our frame and lens brands, visit our Frames & Lenses page.

We offer a large array of prescription contact lenses to help correct myopia. We also offer a range of specialty contacts for other ocular issues.

Orthokeratology contact lenses are specialty contacts that can gently reshape the cornea to reduce myopia, granting you clearer vision.

For a full list of all our regular and specialty contact lenses, visit our Contact Lens Exams, Fittings, & Brands page.

There are a variety of different laser eye surgeries available to correct myopia and provide freedom from glasses and contact lenses, with the most common being LASIK and PRK.

These surgical procedures are done by ophthalmologists. However, not everyone is a candidate for laser eye surgery. If you are interested in having laser eye surgery, please book a consultation with us.
