If you have ever strained to read a faraway street sign or identify your child on a soccer field, you may want to be screened for myopia, or nearsightedness. Patients with this condition have difficulty focusing their vision on distant objects. With myopia, the retina is elongated, preventing light from focusing properly. Patients with myopia may find themselves squinting frequently or straining to see clearly. Myopia affects over 42% of the U.S. population, and can be treated with eyeglasses, contact lenses or Lasik eye surgery.

Our Optometrists are experienced in working with myopia. We offer customized eye care solutions, including the best selection of kids’ frames in central Alberta and the Zeiss’s digital eyeglass measuring tool to ensure that your eyeglasses will be a perfect fit.
