WHAT IS MYOPIA AND HOW DOES IT AFFECT VISION?
Myopia is more commonly known as short sightedness. This is where people can see objects near to them clearly but distant objects appear blurred. Vision can be corrected by wearing glasses with prescription lenses or contact lenses.
Myopia can often start in children as young as six and can cause them to experience difficulties in education or sports.
Myopia is progressive and eyes with a high degree of Myopia are at an increased risk of developing a serious condition like retinal detachment or glaucoma in the future.
FUTURE PROOFING THEIR VISION
There is no ‘cure’ for myopia but Wendy Diddams are specialists in myopia control treatments that can slow or halt its progression.
Myopia management is ideal for anyone, but especially children, who play a lot of sports, find contact lenses uncomfortable or simply want the freedom from wearing their spectacles.
For glasses-free vision during the day, we also offer children Ortho K lenses for overnight vision correction.
CHECK YOUR CHILD'S SUITABILITY FOR MYOPIA CONTROL
The earlier Myopia is acted upon the more chance there is to minimise its progression, causing less impact on your child’s vision in the future.
