What Is Myopia?

Is your child struggling to see distant objects clearly? They might be dealing with myopia, a vision condition that causes blurred and out-of-focus distance vision.

Managing myopia is important because, if left untreated, it can lead to complications down the road. Myopia also runs in families, meaning your child might have a higher risk of the condition if you have myopia.

How Myopia Affects Kids

Ever wondered how myopia affects kids? Well, even though it might not seem like a big deal at first, it can cause some issues down the line. Some of the most common long-term complications include:

In severe cases, high myopia may even elevate the risk of retinal detachment, which can potentially lead to sudden and permanent vision loss. 

Our Strategies

We understand helping your kids achieve crystal-clear vision is a top priority. That’s why we offer an array of myopia control strategies tailor-made for your child’s needs.

We strive to stay on the cutting edge of myopia control strategies, embracing innovative treatments like MiSight contact lenses and atropine eye drops. Find out which strategy may be right for your child when you visit us for an appointment.

MiSight Contacts

MiSight contact lenses are designed with innovative optical technology to slow down myopia progression in children.

These lenses are approved for managing myopia in kiddos as young as 5 years old. By gently manipulating how light focuses in the eye, they can help reduce myopia progression.

Multifocal contacts and eyeglasses lenses have multiple corrective powers to reduce or halt myopia progression. They focus light on the retina in a way that signals the eye to slow its growth, helping to decrease myopia progression.

Atropine eye drops use atropine as an active ingredient to help relax and enlarge the pupil while temporarily disabling the muscles in charge of focusing. They can be applied once per day at night to help reduce myopia progression.
