What Is Myopia?

Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a refractive error that affects how well you see things far away. It begins in childhood and can progress into adulthood.

Myopia can occur if your eye elongates or if your cornea is too steep. When these issues happen, it can cause light entering your eye to focus in front of your retina instead of on it. The result is blurred vision when you look at things far away.

As you grow older, your symptoms can continue to increase. In high myopia cases, you may have a risk of retinal detachment, resulting in vision loss.


You may have a risk of developing myopia if you:

  • Have a family history of myopia
  • Come from Asian communities
  • Spend a lot of time doing close-up work
  • Don’t spend enough time outside

Some common myopia symptoms include:

  • Headaches
  • Eye strain
  • Squinting
  • Difficulty driving
  • Poor night vision

Childhood Myopia

Myopia, like amblyopia (lazy eye) and strabismus (crossed-eyes), can develop early in your child’s life. In some cases, your child may develop symptoms as early as 3 to 5 years old.

The best way to manage your child’s myopia is with regular eye exams. You may be able to spot some myopia signs in your child’s behavior, including:

  • Excessive eye rubbing
  • Constant blinking
  • Sitting closer to things like the television to see it properly
  • Consistent headaches caused by eye strain

Managing Myopia Progression

We offer a range of multifocal contact lenses to manage myopia. Multifocals, like MiSight 1 Day contacts, are designed with multiple rings of peripheral defocus. This helps peripheral light focus just in front of the retina, signalling the eye to slow down its elongation.

Orthokeratology (Ortho-K) contacts are used to gently reshape the cornea while you sleep. With continued use of these contact lenses, you may be able to achieve clear vision without the use of contacts or eyeglasses!

Low-dose atropine eye drops are common for managing myopia progression in children and adults. Some studies have shown that myopia is connected to focusing fatigue, but these eye drops help relax the focusing mechanisms in your eye and slow myopia.
