Nearsightedness: A Growing Concern  

Myopia (nearsightedness) is a common vision problem—and it is getting more prevalent. At Eyesis Eyecare, we understand the impact myopia can have on a child’s life and learning, and we offer myopia control methods to help, including myopia control lenses for glasses and MiSight contact lenses. 

We can help you get started and support your child’s needs through children’s eye exams and a wide selection of children’s eyewear. Visit us to get started.

What Is Myopia Control?

Myopia is a refractive error that affects distance vision. Myopia control isn’t just about treating nearsightedness, though—it’s about making a difference in a child’s lifetime eye health. Myopia control methods can help slow the progression of myopia and provide long-lasting benefits for your little one by reducing their lifetime risk of myopia complications.

The Link Between Vision & Learning

The relationship between a child’s vision and their academic success can be profound, and myopia, if left unaddressed, can cast a shadow over various aspects of their learning journey. In the classroom, children with myopia may find it challenging to clearly see the whiteboard, participate in group activities, and focus on assignments. 

The strain of constantly adjusting to blurred vision may lead to headaches, eye fatigue, and a lack of concentration, affecting overall academic performance. Beyond the classroom, myopia can extend its impact to extracurricular activities too, including sports and other recreational pursuits.

Regular eye exams play a pivotal role in identifying myopia early on and enabling timely interventions to address visual challenges. 

Our Myopia Control Methods

Addressing myopia early is crucial, and at Eyesis Eyecare, we offer different myopia control methods to meet your child’s needs, including MiSight contact lenses and myopia control lenses.

MiSight contact lenses are designed to slow the progression of myopia. These daily disposable lenses are worn during the day and can provide clear vision while actively working to slow and control myopia progression for your child.

Myopia control eyeglasses lenses, specifically crafted for children, aim to slow down the advancement of nearsightedness. These lenses are part of our selection of comprehensive children’s eyewear solutions that can focus on both visual clarity and myopia management.
