Myopia or nearsightedness is a common vision disorder. Your distance vision is affected by myopia. Myopia occurs when light rays incorrectly bend (refract) due to the shape of the eye or specific parts of the eye.
The retina is the area on the back of the eye where light should be focused, but in the case of nearsightedness, the light is focused in front of the retina.
Childhood and adolescence are when nearsightedness often develops. In general, between the ages of 20 and 40, it stabilizes.
It is crucial to slow myopia development as far as possible because of the issues that severe myopia may cause. Eyeglasses can potentially correct myopia, but they cannot reduce the advancement of myopia. Even if you think your child can see perfectly, their myopia is still getting worse.
Treatments prevent the development of myopia rather than only restoring the eyesight. Contact lenses, eyeglasses, and prescription eye drops are some ways to do this. Myopia management is possible with MiSight contact lenses, the first FDA approved soft lenses for Myopia management.
A three-year, multi-country clinical examination of the MiSight lens on 144 children aged 8 to 12 found that it could prevent the development of myopia by up to 59%.
