Myopia Therapy 

Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a common eye condition where distant objects appear blurry while close ones are seen clearly. Parents need to know that myopia can affect their children's ability to see from afar and their overall eye health. As myopia worsens, it increases the chance of serious eye problems, such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal detachment, and cataracts. The Canadian Association of Optometrists considers Myopia Therapy a standard of care to reduce risks of eye disease later in life.

Myopia Risk Assessment

The best way to determine if your child is Myopic and would benefit from a therapy program is to consult one of our Optometrists at Eyes 360. We have technology that assists us in monitoring Myopia progression. The button below will take you to an online assessment that you can bring in to discuss with your doctor.

Myopia Disease Risk and Management

Myopia- What are the Risks?

This table shows the risks associated with Myopia; with each increase in prescription, the risk of disease increases at a substantial multiple. Early detection and management of Myopia is imperative for ocular health. The increased risks include Myopic Maculopathy, Retinal Detachment, Cataracts, and Glaucoma. 

Key Signs and Symptoms of Myopia in Children

1. Blurry Distance Vision

Children with myopia may struggle to see distant objects clearly. They might have difficulty reading the blackboard at school or recognizing faces from a distance.

2. Squinting

Squinting reduces the size of the blurry image on the retina, temporarily improving focus. Notice if your child squints frequently, especially when trying to see distant objects.

3. Excessive Eye Rubbing

Frequent eye rubbing can indicate eye strain or fatigue, common in children with vision issues like myopia.

4. Headaches and Eye Strain

Regular headaches and complaints of tired eyes can be symptoms of myopia, resulting from the strain of trying to focus on distant objects.

5. Sitting Too Close to Screens or Books

Children might sit closer to the television, hold books or devices too close to their face, or prefer sitting at the front of the classroom to see clearly.
