Myopia (or nearsightedness) is an increasingly common eye condition that causes distant objects to appear blurry.

Myopic Epidemic Sweeping the Globe ?

Currently, there is a worldwide myopic epidemic sweeping the globe, with cases of the condition climbing at an alarming rate. By 2050, it is estimated that 5 billion people, or 50% pf the world’s population, will be myopic.

Science points to increase screen time and less time outdoors as key factors linked to this myopia boom.

As parents, we must consider the amount of time our children are spending in front of screens and the long-term effect it may have on their eyes. Since myopia tends to get worse as our children grow, it can put them at a much higher risk for serious eye disease in adulthood, such as retinal detachments, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and cataracts.

Introducing Euclid Emerald™ Ortho-K Treatment

Euclid Emerald lenses are the only Ortho-K lenses made with MyoK Design.
