Millions of children across Canada are poised to benefit from a breakthrough therapy that addresses the fast-growing issue of myopia (nearsightedness), which is projected to negatively affect more than 50 percent of the world’s population by 20502.

The challenge with myopia is that as the eye continues to grow, the retinal tissue has to stretch. Worsening myopia significantly increases the risk of retinal detachment and myopic maculopathy, with even low myopia levels associated with a higher prevalence of glaucoma and cataracts3.
