Keeping Your Goals in Clear Sight

Myopia is a common refractive error that affects over an estimated 40% of Americans. A refractive error occurs when the eye does not refract light properly, creating blurred and out-of-focus distance vision.

Myopia occurs when the eyeball grows too long, or the cornea becomes too steep. Most myopic parents will have myopic children, due to the condition being hereditary. Myopia is often discovered in children between the ages of 8 and 12 and can get progressively worse into adulthood.

Most comprehensive eye exams will pinpoint signs of myopia, but there are cases where children are unable to articulate their symptoms. Common symptoms include:

  • Frequent headaches
  • Eyestrain
  • Squinting to see
  • Difficulty seeing things at a distance, like road signs or a whiteboard at school

Treatment of Myopia

We offer a variety of treatment options for myopia. In some cases, the progression of myopia can be slowed by controlling the growth of the eyeball. Although there is no current nonsurgical treatment to prevent the progression of myopia, treatments such as multifocal lenses and atropine eye drops can keep the condition from worsening.

Glasses or contact lenses are the standard treatment for myopia. We offer a wide variety of fashionable frames to choose from or can recommend a suitable style of contact lenses, if desired.

Multifocal contact lenses have been shown to effectively slow the progression of myopia in children. Multifocal lenses work to focus light correctly on the retina, while preventing near strain, preventing the eyeball from continuing to grow (which causes myopia to worsen).

There is now a soft multifocal contact lens approved to prevent myopia progression.

Atropine drops have been found to be wildly successful in slowing the progression of myopia, particularly in children. The drops work by relaxing the eye’s focusing mechanism, delaying the continuous lengthening of the eyeball.

If you or your child are experiencing symptoms of myopia, we will be happy to provide you with the treatment you need.
