Menicon Bloom™ is a complete treatment plan for myopia management with contact lenses.

Myopia is an eye condition (refractive error) that causes blurry vision when looking at distant objects (e.g.: TV, blackboard, traffic signals). Near vision is normally preserved (e.g.: reading, tablets, phones).

Find out why myopia is such a hot topic below.

Prevalence and Causes of Myopia

By 2050, global trends predict that nearly 50% of the world’s population will be diagnosed with some degree of myopia.1


Myopia is linked to increased times on close work.2

Children are now exposed to much close work at younger ages, thus increasing their risk of myopia development. Limiting close work time should always be considered.


Myopia can be hereditary.3 One myopic parent can increase the risk of their kid developing myopia x3 times. Two myopic parents could increase the risk x6 times.

Ethnicity could also be a risk factor, being the Asian ethnicity the one associated with faster progression of myopia.4


There is evidence5 to say that the possibilities of a kid developing myopia are reduced with more time spent playing outside. This could be linked to the light levels in comparison to being indoors. Encouraging time outdoors is recommended.

Why is it important?

Myopia tends to progress throughout childhood, faster in younger kids.6

Higher rates of myopia can increase the risk of serious eye conditions in adulthood.7
