Optometrists typically diagnose myopia with routine eye exams and prescribe eyeglasses or contacts to correct it. Myopia can stabilize after childhood, but over time your eyes will change. We recommend having regular exams to make sure your lenses remain effective in the long-term.
Uncorrected vision can exacerbate myopia symptoms. Because myopia causes the eye to elongate over time, your vision needs to be corrected properly to slow its progression. MiSight contact lenses are a simple and effective solution for this issue.
MiSight lenses correct errors to your distance vision by focusing light on your retina and uses a set of peripheral rings to focus some light in front of your retina, reducing how quickly the eye elongates over time. Because myopia is a common issue in children, these contact lenses are fantastic solutions for your child, helping them control their symptoms and maintain their vision into the future.
MiyoSmart lenses are another lens technology that can help reduce the rate the eye elongates over time. Like MiSight contact lenses, these special eyeglass lenses help focus light on your retina, with peripheral defocus rings that focus peripheral light in front of your retina. These lenses can help your eyes maintain its shape while delivering clear vision as well.
LASIK surgery can also provide a permanent solution to myopia for those who qualify. This procedure uses a laser to carefully correct the shape of the lens in your eye. LASIK is generally considered a comfortable and hassle-free procedure for people who no longer want to wear corrective lenses or contacts.
