Myopia Q & A
Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is becoming more prevalent as screen time usage increases. Today, we have options to slow the progression of myopia, which reduces the risk of complications down the line like retinal detachments and myopic maculopathy. There are various methods of myopia control, and Midway Optometry offers soft multifocals (B&L's overnight VST lens), bifocals, and atropine drops. If you would like to learn more about myopia, its risk factors, and how to prevent it from progressing, we encourage you to schedule an eye exam to hear more from our doctors.
