Myopia At a Glance

Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a refractive error that prevents you from seeing clearly at a distance. Your near vision remains unaffected. Myopia occurs when the shape of your eye is too elongated, or the back wall is too steep, causing the light entering your eye to focus in front of your retina instead of on it.

Myopia is one of the most common refractive errors people experience around the globe. Researchers believe around 30% of Canadians have some degree of myopia, with an estimated 35% of children living with uncorrected myopia.

Aside from affecting your vision’s distance, this condition can also cause other issues, including headaches, ocular discomfort, and problems focusing.

Myopia in Children

Myopia often develops during childhood, with 6% of children between 6 and 8 and 29% of children between 11 and 13 experiencing symptoms. For some children, uncorrected myopia has been linked to poor performance in school, shortened attention spans, headaches, and eye strain.

Some researchers also have found a connection between myopia and excessive digital device use, including computers, smartphones, televisions, and tablets. This may have to do with the prolonged focusing associated with prolonged digital device use causing unnecessary eye strain.

However, myopia isn’t necessarily a cause for concern. To help your child’s vision go the distance, please make sure your child is having regular eye exams.

How to Correct Myopia

There is no cure for myopia, but you can correct it using prescription glasses or contact lenses. Laser eye surgery can also be used to correct a variety of refractive errors, including myopia.

Comprehensive eye exams can determine the extent of your myopia and find the prescription you need to enjoy clear, crisp vision.
