What causes Myopia / Nearsightedness and treatments

What is myopia or nearsightedness?

If you are nearsighted, you will have difficulty seeing distant objects but will be able to see objects up close such as reading or computer use. Studies have shown that myopia is caused by genetics as well as other environmental factors.

Staring at any object too long can cause the eye to elongate which causes myopia or nearsightedness.

Myopia has reached epidemic levels globally and is considered by many experts to be a serious children’s health issue. If untreated, myopia could dramatically affect a child’s ability to learn. Myopia can also lead to glaucoma, detached retina, and premature cataracts.

Thankfully, there’s a non-surgical treatment option with Paragon CRT contact lenses. Paragon CRT contact lenses are FDA approved with millions in use in over 50 countries around the world. These unique lenses are designed to gently reshape the surface of the eye while you sleep.
