What Is Myopia?

Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is when patients complain that distant objects appear blurry. It occurs when the eyeball is too long, or the cornea is too curved, causing light to focus in front of the retina instead of on it. Myopia usually develops in childhood and can worsen throughout the teenage years.

If left untreated, myopia can lead to serious complications, such as an increased risk of developing glaucoma, cataracts, and retinal detachment, making it crucial to seek treatment as soon as possible.

Myopia Control

Fortunately, there are ways to control myopia and slow its progression to prevent any further issues. Our pediatric eye doctor will recommend several treatments to manage intolerance in children, including:

  • Orthokeratology: Also known as Ortho-K, the treatment involves wearing specialized contact lenses while sleeping to reshape the cornea and improve vision during the day.
  • Multifocal Contact Lenses: These lenses have multiple prescriptions, which can slow myopia progression and correct vision.
  • Atropine Eye Drops: The drops dilate the pupil and relax the eye muscles, reducing the strain on the eyes and slowing the progression of myopia.
