Why is Myopia a problem?
As the eye continues to grow, the retinal tissue has to stretch. The more myopia you develop the higher the risk for specific eye health and vision issues. For example, a -7.00 myopia has over a 44 times higher risk of developing a retinal detachment compared to someone who has normal vision.
What can we do about it?
We offer two exciting Health Canada approved contact lens options that can control the progression of myopia: Ortho-keratology and MiSight. We can’t stop it completely in all cases; but, studies show a slowing of progression by 59%.
