Myopia Management

Myopia Management

Myopia, or short- sightedness, is a common visual condition affecting many people worldwide with increasing prevalence. It usually starts in childhood, and as a parent or guardian, it is important to understand the significance of managing it, to protect your child’s vision and eye health. 

Myopia can progress rapidly as children grow, causing physical elongation of the eye, which is linked to eye disease in adulthood, such as retinal detachment, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and cataracts.

We prescribe Essilor Stellest spectacle lenses and Coopervision MiSight contact lenses. Both work by changing the way light focuses on the retina, reducing the stimulus for further eye elongation and myopic progression. Encouraging children to spend more time outdoors and reducing their screen time can also help.

If you have any concerns about your child's vision or would like to learn more about myopia management, please call and book an appointment with one of our optometrists.

The risk of developing myopia can be significantly reduced with early detection and proactive management.
