Myopia, the clinical term for nearsightedness, is a common vision condition where you can see close objects clearly, but your eyesight is blurry when looking at things in the distance. Eyeglasses can correct your vision temporarily, but myopia will continue to worsen as it progresses, and lead to other eye health problems if not managed. Myopia can develop at any age, though we have found the most success with our myopia management program when we start early, ideally between the ages of 8 and 12.
Our team is skilled in managing myopia, which prevents your child’s eyesight from getting worse, helping to avoid other more serious eye health issues down the line. Using our state-of-the-art technology, we’ll comfortably diagnose your child’s myopia before it causes them difficulty so we can stay ahead of its progression. We’ll then create a myopia management plan for them which can reduce the need for frequent, stronger glasses prescription updates. This custom plan uses a variety of methods, including near glasses lenses, specialty contact lenses, and medical eye drops.
