Myopia, or Nearsightedness, is a condition that describes when light enters the eye and is focused in front of the retina (the light-sensitive tissue in the back of the eye). Usually, myopia occurs because the eyeball grows too long during childhood. The result is squinting to try to correct the blurred or distorted vision.

Myopia is a major health concern and is considered an epidemic because of how it affects vision and health.

What Can You Do?

At Pediatric & Adult Vision Care, we can treat myopia by prescribing Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT). Also, called Overnight Retainers, CRT is a non-surgical, FDA-approved therapeutic contact lens worn while sleeping that reshapes the cornea without permanently altering its physiology. This is important as the eyes of children and teens are still maturing. You wear the lenses at night, take them out in the morning and the result is clear vision the entire day!
