What is Myopia Management?
Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a refractive condition that occurs when the front of the cornea is too long, making it hard to focus on distant objects.
Myopia is very common in children, but not without concern. Glasses can correct vision, but they won’t stop the eye from getting longer or myopia from getting worse. When left untreated, myopia doesn’t just lead to faster prescription changes and more eyewear: it creates a greater risk of eye disease later in life.
Thankfully, our myopia management can help children’s eyes develop, slow myopia’s progression, improve vision, and let your kids focus on school, sports, and socializing!
Why Choose Our Optometric Centers for Myopia Control
At each of our sister practices – La Paz Optometric Center, Mission Viejo Optometric Center, North Tustin Ave Optometric Center, and Brookhurst Optometric Center – your children will receive dedicated care from passionate eye professionals who can’t wait to help improve their sight. We’ll keep you informed about your child’s eyes and their health, and create a custom plan suited to their hobbies and personal responsibility.
We offer ongoing, in-depth monitoring to ensure that our myopia control is delivering the best outcomes. Patient experience is everything to us: you can rest assured that your child’s myopia management will be as comfortable as it is life-changing!
Our Specialized Myopia Management Treatment Method: Ortho-K
Take back clear vision with Ortho-K, our primary treatment method for myopia. Ortho-K is a special type of contact lens that gently reshapes the eyes while your child sleeps. This gives them clearer vision the next day and counteracts unhealthy eye growth.
Over time, Ortho-K prevents a large amount of eyeball lengthening, hindering myopia’s progression. With consistent Ortho-K treatment, patients often find they require a lessened vision prescription, during the next day and into adulthood.
