What Is Myopia?

Myopia is a vision condition that affects your child’s distance vision—making faraway objects appear blurry and out-of-focus. 

It’s important to manage myopia because, if left untreated, it can lead to further complications later in life. Myopia control strategies can help manage myopia progression, keeping your child’s vision clear and protected from future conditions.

How It Affects Kids

So, how does myopia affect kids?

Though the effects might seem minor in its early stages, it could lead to several conditions later in life. These conditions can include:

In severe cases, high myopia may even increase the risk of retinal detachment. Retinal detachment can cause sudden and permanent vision loss.

How We Can Help

We understand how important it is for kids to have clear, healthy vision. That’s why we offer several myopia control strategies we can recommend based on your child’s needs.

Our strategies use innovative treatments, such as orthokeratology (ortho-k) lenses and atropine eye drops, to help slow myopia progression while keeping your child’s vision clear and protected from future conditions.

MiSight Contacts

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

The lenses gently manipulate how light is focused onto the eye, reducing myopia progression.

Ortho-k lenses reshape the cornea overnight while your child sleeps, allowing them to see clearly without glasses or contacts during the day.

Ortho-k lenses are ideal for children who don’t want to wear eyeglasses or traditional contacts all day and can help keep their vision healthy and clear into adulthood.

Multifocal contacts and lenses are designed with multiple corrective powers that can help reduce or even stop the progression of myopia.

These work by purposely focusing light on the retina in a way that signals it to slow down its growth, reducing myopia progression.

Atropine eye drops contain the active ingredient atropine, which helps relax and enlarge the pupil while temporarily disabling the focusing muscles.

By doing this, it can help reduce myopia progression.
