What Is Myopia?
Myopia is a common refractive error that affects the quality of your child’s distance vision.
It can occur if the eye elongates over time or if the cornea curves too much, causing light to focus in front of the retina instead of on it. Myopia usually develops in childhood and can progress into adulthood, and studies suggest it affects almost half of the world’s population.
Myopia & Your Child’s Sight
Myopia is becoming increasingly common in children and can have a negative impact on their sight over time. Myopia can cause eye strain and headaches, and increase the risk of developing more serious eye conditions, such as cataracts, glaucoma, and retinal detachment.
To help protect your child’s sight, it’s important to have regular eye exams and to seek out myopia control options. Myopia control involves a combination of eyeglasses, contact lenses, and vision therapy that work together to slow the progression of nearsightedness.
How We Can Help
We will start with a comprehensive eye exam to assess your child’s vision and develop a treatment plan. If your child has myopia, we will discuss myopia control options and determine the best course of action to slow the progression of nearsightedness.
MiSight Contact Lenses
A type of soft contact lens designed specifically for myopia control in children. These lenses use a unique design that helps to slow down the progression of nearsightedness by providing clear vision at all distances while also promoting healthy eye growth.
Atropine Eye Drops
Atropine eye drops relax the eye’s focusing mechanism and, in low doses, have been shown to slow myopia progression in children as young as 4.
Ortho-k lenses manage myopia by temporarily reshaping the cornea while your child sleeps. This helps to correct nearsightedness and reduce the need for glasses or daytime contact lenses.
Multifocal Glasses & Contacts
Multifocal glasses and contacts are a type of vision correction that help people see clearly at all distances—near, intermediate, and far.
Studies have shown that multifocal lenses can help slow down myopia progression by focusing peripheral light in a way that slows down the elongation of the eye.
