The consequences of high myopia are more than just needing glasses with thick lenses. With children spending more time in front of screens and less time outdoors, myopia is quickly becoming endemic. Myopia, or nearsightedness, occurs when the eyeball grows too long and the image no longer focuses properly on the retina. The higher the myopia, the more stretching of delicate tissues inside the eye, increasing the risk of sight threatening diseases.
Those with myopia have a significantly increased risk of blindness or vision impairment due to retinal detachment, myopic macular degeneration and glaucoma.

Current treatment options at Harbourfront Eye Care that have been shown to slow myopia progression include:

Multi-focus glasses (MiyoSmart myopia control glasses)
Multifocal contact lenses (MiSight)
Eye drops (Atropine)
Orthokeratology, or ortho-k (specialty contact lenses)
