Focus on Your Child’s Future

Myopia, otherwise known as nearsightedness, is a common vision problem that typically develops in childhood. It’s a condition that occurs when the eye grows into an elongated shape, or the cornea grows too steep, causing the image to focus in front of the retina. 

Myopia results in distant objects appearing blurry, while closer objects remain clear and sharp in the visual field. Other symptoms of uncorrected myopia may include: 

  • Headaches
  • Eyestrain 
  • Squinting

Myopia typically develops in childhood, and worsens until adulthood. 

Chestermere Optometry looks closely for signs of myopia in every child’s eye exam. Our optometrists will diagnose and work together with your family to implement management strategies to control its development.
