What is Myopia?
Myopia is more commonly referred to as nearsightedness, or the inability to see objects clearly at a distance. It is a progressive and irreversible eye disease, not just refractive error. The underlying cause of myopia is due to the eye growing longer than it should, which poses an increased risk by at least two times of diseases like Glaucoma, Retinal Detachment, and Myopia Maculopathy.
Myopia in children increases when parents have myopia. The likelihood of children developing myopia increases:
1 in 2 when both parents have myopia
1 in 3 when one parents has myopia
1 in 4 when neither parent has myopia
State-of-the-art equipment and skilled optometrists to accurately assess the risks of myopia development and predict the rate of progression.
Tailored treatment plans, including orthokeratology, novel daytime contact lenses, and pharmaceutics, to control myopia and reduce risks of complications.

Reinvent Yourself Through Better Vision
Addressing myopia in children is crucial for their overall well-being. Treating myopia early not only enhances visual comfort, reducing eye strain and fatigue but also positively impacts academic performance by improving focus and concentration.
Here is how we can help!
If you would like to find out what treatment is best for your child to control their myopia please call our office. There will be a charge for this visit however the fee will be applied to your myopia control treatment when it begins.
One option for myopia control is a specific type of contact lens that is worn during the day and also acts as vision correction. When you come in for your myopia control consultation our doctors will do a detailed evaluation to determine if this is right for you.
OrthoK or Corneal Refractive Therapy, is a non-surgical option that helps correct nearsightedness without the daytime use of contacts or glasses. These lenses are worn at night, and correct the curvature of the cornea while sleeping so you can see clearly during the day.
Myopia Management lenses are designed to help slow the progression of myopia in kids and give them clear, comfortable vision at the same time. There are many being developed now and soon will be available in the US.
