Myopia: Everything you need to know

We can get technical, but hardly anyone would understand. We tell you in a simple way everything about myopia: origin, trends and which frames best fit this visual need.

What is myopia?

Myopia is an abnormality of the eye that causes us to see distant objects blurred.

Why does myopia occur?

Myopia is due to the fact that your eye has a more powerful cornea or lens than usual and causes images to form before reaching the retina, therefore, you do not see clearly what what happens in the distance

How can we correct myopia?

To compensate or correct myopia we must resort to concave lenses, lenses for myopia or choose the contact lenses option, such as MyDay Daily.

What kind of lenses are recommended?

The frames we recommend are those with round shape, small in size and preferably made of acetate.

Myopic people use a thicker lens than normal; For this reason, a small, round, acetate frame will allow us to hide the glass more and prevent it from protruding from the frame.

The myopia lens is known as concave lens. What does this mean? Easy, it means that these crystals are thicker at the edges and the thickness decreases progressively towards the center. Therefore, we say that small frames work best, to avoid a large lens and a lens that is thicker around the edge.

What is the current trend?

During the last few years, there has been a trend that has come to stay, and it is none other than the frequent use of screens that emit harmful light. It is estimated that by 2050, more than 90% of the population will be myopic.

Scary, right?

Fully immersed in the digital world, the population will not be able to live without looking at at least one screen a day. It is time to look to the future and take care of our eyes to prevent myopia.

How to prevent myopia?

The solution to this problem lies, as in all visual problems, in taking care of our visual health.

For this, it is necessary to go to an eye examination once a year, to get our eyes ready and not miss anything that surrounds us.

As you know, you can enjoy a free eye exam at our optician's at Calle Campoamor 10 (Madrid). What are you waiting for book an appointment?
