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.
