It is projected that 50% of the world will be nearsighted or myopic by 2050. Although the short term solution is to prescribe glasses or contact lenses, the long term problem is an increase in sight threatening disease with age from glaucoma retinal detachment and macular myopic degeneration. It is no longer enough to just prescribe thicker glasses and contact lenses. Newer treatments are available in our Myopia Control Clinic In Mississauga that will help slow the progression of myopia and decrease risk of diseases.

Strategies include:

  • prescription eye drops
  • pediatric contact lenses either for overnight wear or daily wear
  • specific peripheral design spectacle lenses
