Why Myopia Control Is Important
Myopia makes everything harder. If you ask anyone who is nearsighted and they’ll tell you that it isn’t fun. Glasses fog up and get dirty. Contacts can get dry. Seeing an alarm clock in the middle of the night can be almost impossible. These problems only get worse when the prescription gets worse.
Myopia can cause blindness. This isn’t to scare you but to let you know that there is more to myopia than blurry vision. Glaucoma, Cataracts, Retinal Tears and Detachments, and Maculopathy are all at increased risk with higher myopia.
