Perth's Myopia Care/OrthoK Clinic
It is predicted that by 2050, half of the global population (5 billion people) will be myopic.
Myopia or “short-sightedness” is a disease that causes blurry distance vision. The blurred vision in myopia is due to an overly long eyeball or an overly curved cornea which causes the image to focus incorrectly at the back of the eye (the retina).
Specially designed glasses also direct images to the correct areas of the retina, slowing down abnormal eye elongation. They are an effective management option for children who are not yet ready for contact lenses or eyedrops, and for those with abnormal posturing of eye muscles.
Studies have shown that spending time outdoors in bright sunlight and engaging in physical activity can reduce the rate of abnormal eyeball growth, preventing worsening vision. Excessive near vision tasks, such as digital device use or reading, can contribute to larger myopia progression, so it is important to balance near and far vision activities.
