Myopia Treatment and Management in SE Calgary: Visit Us at Vivid Eye Care!

What is Myopia?

Myopia is a prevalent vision condition which causes nearsightedness. Myopia typically develops in children and then progresses into adulthood.

Nearsightedness is the most common refractive error in eyes, and causes difficulty in seeing distant objects clearly. The ability to clearly see objects up close is not affected.

Our experienced team at Vivid Eye Care has worked with successfully treated many cases of myopia – it all begins with your comprehensive eye exam.

What Causes Myopia?

Myopia is caused when the eyeball is too long relative to the focusing power of the cornea and lens of the eye.

Over the past few decades, myopia has seen a dramatic increase in cases amongst Canadians. While there is no definitive cause for this increase, most eye doctors and researchers believe that the increased use of computers and digital devices is a major contributor.

Symptoms of Myopia

As mentioned earlier, if you are nearsighted, you will have difficulty seeing distant objects clearly. In addition to this symptom, you may also experience:

  • Excessive squinting
  • Strained eyes
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches

Treatment and Management

These are applied directly into the eye, relaxing the focusing muscles to reduce fatigue and strain.

Specially designed corrective lenses which significantly reduce strain associated with focusing

Commonly referred to as CRT, these specialized contact lenses gently reshape the cornea so that its relative focusing power is more compatible with the shape of the eyeball.

This decades-old practice has seen a resurgence in popularity as research in myopia control demonstrated its value. Considered the precursor to CRT, ortho-k is still used when appropriate. It is a safe, well-practiced technique that can positively influence myopia.
