Myopia Control

Learn more about Myopia and how we can manage your child’s progression.

What is Myopia?

Myopia also called near-sightedness is a condition in which without correction (glasses or contact lenses) a patient is unable to see far away. This is typically due to an eyeball that is longer than average that continues to grow in childhood. Progressive myopia typically starts occurring around age 6-7 and gets worse as the child ages usually up to age 18. As the eyeball grows so does their prescription and need for correction.

What is Myopia Control/ Management?

Here in our office we offer multiple different methods on slowing down your child’s progression of myopia. Our goal with myopia control is to slow down and potentially STOP your child’s eye from lengthening making their prescription more stable. The three methods we use are:

  • Multifocal contact lenses
  • Orthokeratology
  • Low Dose Atropine Drops

Schedule an exam/consultation now with one of our doctors to ensure the best vision for your child with myopia.
