What is Myopia?

Myopia is a condition commonly known as nearsightedness in which people can see close objects clearly, but objects farther away appear blurred. We find more and more kids are now needing eyeglasses and their prescription is increasing every year.  We have been looking into treatments that can stop or at least slow down the progression of Myopia so your child doesn’t need stronger glasses year after year. Children between the ages 7-14 and 20-25 prescription progresses more rapidly.

What are the causes of Myopia?

Myopia typically begins during childhood and children have a higher risk if their parents are nearsighted. In most cases, nearsightedness stabilizes in early adulthood but sometimes it continues to progress with age.

Treatment of Myopia

Myopia is a disease which has no cure. Prescription eyeglasses, contacts lenses and Lasik eye surgery have been the only option available to patients with myopia.

The most frequent question parents ask us is “What can I do to stop my child’s prescription from getting worse?” We can now answer by offering treatment options which will help slow down the progression of their child’s prescription.
