Myopia (nearsighted) Control

For the last 100 years, the primary way myopia (nearsightedness) was treated was by giving stronger and stronger glasses. This approach is not longer good enough especially for children that are needing glasses for myopia at a young age.

Besides the inconvenience of increasingly blurred vision and dependence on glasses, there are significant risks that come with being nearsighted. People that are nearsighted are more likely to have retinal detachments, glaucoma, and develop cataracts at a younger age.

Just in the last few years, researchers have started to find excellent ways to slow the progression of myopia (nearsightedness) in children. Our doctors are up to date on the newest treatments and will discuss what options may be best for your child.
