Children's Myopia

Is your child’s prescription getting worse and worse? It’s more than an inconvenience, it vastly increases the likelihood of vision-threatening diseases such as macular degeneration developing later in life. Myopia control can effectively slow and even halt the progression, significantly mitigating these risks.

Learn More About Myopia & Your Child's Vision

Since the 1970's the prevalence of myopia has more than doubled in North America, mainly due to the shift from outdoor to screen time. Myopia in children can be a progressive condition, getting worse each year. Children with medium and high myopia have a 2,200% increase in retinal detachments and other vision-threatening conditions such as glaucoma. Learn about myopia control in Waterloo.

What causes myopia? - A new theory

Optometrists were once taught that genetics were the cause of myopia. Now scientists are finding that a lack of daily exposure to sunlight is correlated to higher myopia rates. Our children used to play outside for more than 2-3 hours on a daily basis. Now we see that children are inside more, playing on tablets and other digital devices for hours on end. Studies show that this is harmful to their eyes.

Myopia prevention and slowing

Preventing and slowing down the progression of myopia can save your child's vision later in life. Parents can help by encouraging children to play outside more, put limits on screen time and take technology breaks every hour. Have annual comprehensive eye exams by an eye doctor - school eye screenings or vision tests are not sufficient to ensure your child's best eye health.

We love talking about your eye health and best vision.
