The first step to preventing long-term damage is knowing the early signs of Myopia so that you can get treatment for you or your child.
Your eyes are sensitive to the smallest changes in your body, and those changes can impact your vision in temporary or long-term ways. Because your eyes are highly sensitive machines, tiny shifts in things like your blood pressure, blood sugar, and hormones can cause changes in your vision.

No one wants their child to struggle to see. However, the symptoms of nearsightedness often go unnoticed by parents for a long time. Children as young as three can begin showing signs of Myopia, although it may not be caught for years without a proper comprehensive eye exam.
Modern life has us constantly in front of screens. Whether it’s your phone, tablet, TV, or computer, there is always some type of digital screen within reach. This over-exposure to the LED backlighting of digital displays can be damaging over time to our eyes and leads to digital eye strain.
When it comes time to book your child’s annual exam, you want to take them to a place that will provide the best vision care available. At Jarvis Vision Center, we strive to offer a welcoming environment that will put you and your child at ease.
Summertime often finds us outdoors enjoying the heat. Whether you’re on the lake, at the pool, or BBQing with your friends and family, you’re bound to get some sun! We all know the dangers of overexposure to sunlight, including sunburns, skin damage, and even skin cancer, but did you know that the sun can be just as harmful to your vision?
