Controlling Nearsightedness (Myopia)

If you are nearsighted (myopic), you will typically have difficulty reading road signs and seeing distant objects clearly, but will be able to see well for close-up tasks such as reading and computer use. Other signs and symptoms of myopia include squinting, eye strain headache as well as feeling fatigued when driving or playing sports. 

Myopia occurs when the eyeball is too long, relative to the focusing power of the cornea and lens of the eye. This causes light rays to focus at a point in front of the retina, rather than directly on its surface


Myopia is now considered a fast growing, serious eye condition affecting more and more teenagers. David has done extra training in slowing down and possibly even stopping myopic progression and is accredited to fit Ortho-K contact lenses (lenses worn overnight that reshape the cornea).
