What is Myopia?myopia control

Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a chronic and progressive condition that causes blurred distance vision. The eyes of a child with myopia become longer over time as the condition progresses, leading to a higher myopic prescription as an adult.

High myopia can lead to sight-threatening problems later in life including myopic macular degeneration, cataracts, glaucoma, and retinal detachment.

It is estimated that 1 in 3 children in the U.S. are affected by myopia.

What is Myopia Control?

Myopia Control is a group of methods used to slow and sometimes halt the progression of myopia in kids, by slowing the elongation of the eye.

Our doctors utilize FDA approved MiSight lenses, a specially designed daily soft contact lens, clinically proven to slow myopia progression by nearly 60% in kids! MiSight lenses change how light focuses on the retina, sending signals to slow down eye elongation and therefore slow myopia progression.
