Myopia Control in Children in Vaughan & Woodbridge

In the modern world, myopia, commonly known as nearsightedness, is on the rise, affecting millions of individuals worldwide. This visual condition not only necessitates corrective eyewear but also poses long-term risks to eye health if left unaddressed. Recognizing the need for effective solutions, our Optometry Clinic is proud to offer comprehensive Myopia Control services that go beyond conventional eyeglasses and contact lenses. Our specialized approach aims not only to correct myopia but also to slow down its progression, promoting clear vision and reducing the associated risks.

Myopia is characterized by the inability to see distant objects clearly. The condition occurs when the eyeball grows too long or the cornea is too curved, causing light to focus in front of the retina instead of directly on it. While eyeglasses and contact lenses provide immediate visual correction, they don't address the underlying issue of the eyeball's abnormal growth. Myopia Control, on the other hand, involves various evidence-based techniques aimed at slowing down this progression.

Our Myopia Control Services:

Orthokeratology (Ortho-K)

This non-surgical treatment involves the use of specialized gas-permeable contact lenses that are worn overnight. These lenses gently reshape the cornea, allowing for clearer vision during the day without the need for glasses or contacts. Ortho-K not only corrects myopia but also offers the advantage of slowing down its progression.

Multifocal Contact Lenses

These contact lenses are designed with different prescriptions for various zones of the lens. This design helps in reducing eye strain caused by near tasks while simultaneously slowing down the progression of myopia.

Atropine Eye Drops

Low-dose atropine eye drops have been proven effective in slowing down myopia progression in children. These drops are prescribed by our experienced optometrists and are tailored to each individual's needs.

Lifestyle and Behavioral Changes

Our expert optometrists provide guidance on various lifestyle modifications that can help manage myopia. This may include recommendations for outdoor activities, reduced screen time, proper lighting, and ergonomic habits to alleviate eye strain.


With revolutionary D.I.M.S. Technology, developed in collaboration with The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, MiYOSMART spectacle lenses correct the visual defect on their entire surface using the D.I.M.S. honeycomb-shaped segments area to slow down myopia progression.

MiSight Contact Lenses

The MiSight® 1 day lens is clinically proven to slow the progression of myopia in age-appropriate children. The efficacy of MiSight 1 day was validated in a multi-year clinical study that enrolled children between 8 and 12 years old. The MiSight® 1 day clinical study is the longest continuous soft contact lens study for myopia management.
