Myopia Control

Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is becoming increasingly common, especially amongst children. Though there is no cure for myopia, which is treated with glasses or contact lenses, recent studies suggest that there may be ways to control myopia and slow its progression in children and teens.

Serious Eye Problems and Myopia

As children with myopia age they generally require stronger prescriptions, and thicker glasses, to correct their vision.

Individuals with myopia are predisposed to a variety of serious eye problems. This includes early cataracts and even detached retinas.

Myopia control can help slow the progression of myopia in children, reducing their chances of developing myopia-related complications and keeping their prescriptions relatively low.

MiSight for Myopia Control

Barrhaven and Manotick Optometric Centres are proud to carry Coopervision’s MiSight 1 day contact lenses. These single vision lenses are specifically designed for child use and are ideal for children who have never worn contact lenses before.

MiSight lenses are revolutionary; the first lenses of their kind to significantly slow myopia progression in children. In fact, one study found that MiSight 1 day lenses could reduce a child’s myopia progression by as much as 59%.

Request an appointment to find out how Coopervision’s MiSight 1 day contact lenses could help preserve your child’s vision.
