Why Does My Child's Nearsightedness Need to Be Managed?
Myopia, or nearsightedness, increases the risk of a child developing severe eye conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, retinal detachment, and macular degeneration later in life.
Glasses and contact lenses can correct vision, but they don’t address the cause of myopia or prevent its progression. This is why myopia management is important.
What is Myopia Management?
Our myopia management services include the use of various tools and treatments to prevent your child’s nearsightedness from worsening. We’ll create a custom myopia management plan based on your child's individual needs to help them maintain healthy vision.
This includes specialized treatments such as orthokeratology, which are contact lenses that temporarily reshape the cornea overnight for clear daytime vision.
What Parents Are Saying About Myopia Management
Love this place! Dr. Hart-Moreland is a wealth of knowledge. Issues that I’ve had all my recent life have been SORTED. She listens and educates and is the sweetest person I’ve ever met. She’s seen my 6. Yr and he felt safe and was never bored. The staff have been nothing but friendly and helpful with a mix of professionalism and fun. The location is beautiful and I can’t wait to come back to see them again.
