Myopia or nearsightedness is the most common reason for a prescription among children and young adults. Our lifestyles are showing an increase in this as children take part in more near tasks like using digital devices, studying and reading. Ways we can help control your child’s myopia would be to spend more time outdoors, give their eyes a break from time to time especially when doing their schooling and to make sure they have annual eye exams. HOYA has introduced lenses for glasses called MiyoSmart lenses and they have proven to decrease the progression of myopia by 60% compared to traditional lens options. If you have questions regarding your child’s sight or the MiyoSmart lenses, please reach out to our doctors and opticians who are more than than happy to help.
