MYOPIA CONTROL WHAT IS MYOPIA?
WHAT IS MYOPIA?
The Importance of Controlling Myopia
Myopia that develops in childhood nearly always stabilizes by age 20, but by then, some kids have a high degree of nearsightedness that makes them more vulnerable to serious health issues. A high prescription increases your risk of developing eye diseases that could lead to loss of vision, such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, and retinal detachment. Myopia control is integral to children’s future eye and vision health as it slows down the progression of myopia and prevents a high prescription.

OTHER TREATMENT OPTIONS
FOR MYOPIA CONTROL
Topical atropine is a medicine used to dilate the pupil and relax the eyes’ focusing mechanism. Research has suggested nearsightedness in children may be linked to focusing fatigue, so using atropine to disable the eye’s focusing mechanism helps to control myopia.
Myopia Education is the use of natural eye relaxation techniques and proper eye hygiene to prevent the progression of myopia. We teach children how to care for their eyes on a daily basis when doing normal activities, such as using technology, ensuring outdoor activity, and practicing safe reading habits.
