Myopia Management FAQs

What is myopia management?

Myopia management uses certain treatments and technologies to slow or even halt your child's myopia progression. Our myopia control program in Midtown is unique as we have the latest technology and experience to ensure your child's vision remains stable and healthy for years to come.

Is myopia management necessary?

Myopia is more than just poor vision. Childhood myopia raises the risk of developing sight-threatening eye diseases later in life, such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and cataracts. Speak to your eye doctor about the best ways to minimize your child’s risk.

At what age does myopia (nearsightedness) usually start?

Myopia can begin as early as 6 and will usually progress until roughly age 20. The longer it progresses, and the higher the prescription, the greater your child’s risk of sight-threatening eye conditions later in life.

When should my child start myopia management?

For optimal results, myopia management should be started as soon as possible. That said, myopia control can help children and teens of all ages.

I had the best experience here! I would like to especially acknowledge the help I had from Haseena R... abi. She was very helpful helping me pick out a pair of sunglasses and also told me about a deal to buy one pair and get another half off so I was able to get the sunglasses I have been wanting to for a reasonable price. She also adjusted my glasses and cleaned them properly before sending me off! 10/10 recommend here and Haseena went above and beyond for me!
