Myopia control is the use of specific treatments to slow the progression of nearsightedness in children. The benefits of slowing down nearsightedness go beyond preventing higher prescriptions or avoiding thick glasses. Higher levels of myopia have been linked to sight-threatening diseases such as retinal detachments, myopic macular degeneration, glaucoma, and cataracts.
as with any eye disease, it is important to take a proactive approach to treating the condition. There are three widely accepted types of myopia control treatments: Orthokeratology (OrthoK aka CRT), Atropine eye drops, and Distance-Center Multifocal Contact Lenses. Schedule an appointment to discuss your individual concerns and to identify the best treatment option for your needs.
