Myopia Control Services at Perception Eyecare

Perception Eyecare is one of the few clinics in Canada that use specialized technology to accurately diagnose and manage myopia. A myopia consultation with our Hamilton Optometrists involves myopia testing such as axial length measurements, cycloplegic refractions, and corneal topography. 

What Is Myopia?

Myopia involves being able to see at near but vision becomes blurry in the distance. Another word for myopia that is commonly used is “near-sighted”

Perception Eyecare is one of the few clinics in Ontario that have treatment options to help slow down myopia. Schedule a consultation with our Stoney creek Optometrists today.

Myopia Control Treatment Options available by Perception Eyecare

  • Myopia Control Glasses (Miyosmart)
  • Orthokeratology/Ortho-K
  • Low dose Atropine  
  • Daily Disposable/Multifocal Contact Lenses 

Our Hamilton Optometry office is taking referrals from other optometrists and eye clinics that require axial length measurements. Axial length is required in myopia management since the progression of myopia in children is related to the axial length of the eye. Please call or text our office at (289) 309 – 1090 if you require this additional testing for your patients.

We are happy to serve patients all over Ontario including Hamilton, Stoney creek, Burlington, Mount Hope, Caledonia, Grimsby, Ancaster, Smithvile, Brantford, and Binbrook.
