Investing in Future Vision

Myopia (nearsightedness) is a common vision condition. Typically developing in childhood, myopia can continue to worsen over time. We’ll normally identify myopia during a children’s eye exam. At this time, we’ll discuss different control and management options with you. 

Myopia control can help limit the progression of nearsightedness as patients age. Slowing the progression early can help prevent higher prescriptions later in life and reduce the risk of other eye issues, including some eye diseases.

What Causes Myopia?

In a healthy eye, light refracts when it enters the eye and focuses on one point—the retina. When the light focuses directly on the retina, the eyes and brain are able to clearly see and interpret images.  

Myopia occurs when the light entering the eye doesn’t focus directly on the retina, specifically when it focuses in front of the retina. This is often caused by a patient’s cornea not being completely smooth or the continual elongation of the eyeball during growth, forcing the light to be refracted improperly. 

Common myopia symptoms include the following: 

  • Blurry vision when looking at distant objects 
  • Frequent squinting 
  • Headaches caused by eyestrain 
  • Difficulty seeing at night
