Why Consider Myopia Control
There are many benefits of myopia control. First, with myopia control, some patients won’t require as strong of a lens prescription over time. This means fewer glasses prescription updates and better natural vision.
Myopia control can also help to reduce the risk of myopia-related eye problems. People with severe myopia have an increased risk of retinal detachment, glaucoma, cataracts, and myopic degeneration.
Myopic degeneration is a type of retinal degeneration that affects people with severe myopia. In myopic patients, the inner layer of the eye, the retina, can become very thin and frail, particularly the central portion known as the macula. The macula controls central vision, and damage to this part of the retina can lead to central vision loss.
