Dear Doctor,

  • “Why are my child’s eyes getting worse?”
  • “Is there anything we can do to stop her
    vision from getting worse?”
  • “How old does he have to be before he
    can have LASIK?

What is Myopia?

Myopia or ‘near-sighted’ is the most
common reason for blurry vision in
individuals younger than age 40. A
near-sighted eye has grown too long
and light focuses in front of the
retina. Myopia management aims to
slow eye growth.

Slow progression of

  • Orthokeratology. Overnight
    contacts gently reshape the
    curvature of the cornea while
    sleeping. Non-surgical. Eliminates
    the need for daytime contacts and
  • Soft Dual-Focus Contact Lenses.
    Specially designed soft contact lenses
    worn daily that change how light is
    focused on the retina.
  • Low-Concentration Atropine
    Therapy. When used at low
    concentrations, atropine is very
    effective at slowing the progression of
    myopia without the undesirable
    effects of pupillary dilation seen at
    higher concentrations. We use this to
    help children who are not yet mature
    enough for contacts.
