What is behind the increase in cases of myopia, also known as nearsightedness?
Myopia is on the rise in Canada due to increased demands on vision while at school and home. While it is not possible to stop Myopia from progressing there are treatments to slow down the rate of progression. The key is to not only stop the prescription from getting worse but to also stop the growth of the eye (the axial length).
How does MYAH treat myopia?
The MYAH, by Topcon, not only allows us to track the progression of a patient’s prescription, but to track the axial length of the eye. This allows us to provide targeted Myopia Control Treatment while providing the patient, and their parents, with more information.
