Myopia Control

On average, 30% of the world’s population has myopia or nearsightedness. It is projected that 50% of the population will have myopia by the year 2050.

Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is not only inconvenient for those affected–it can actually increase the risk of having certain eye diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts, myopic macular degeneration, and retinal detachments.

Nearsightedness and Myopia Control in Children

Fortunately, in recent years, studies have shown that optometrists can help to slow the progression of myopia in children. Four methods have been proven to slow the progress of nearsightedness:

  • Diluted atropine eye drops
  • Multifocal contact lenses
  • Orthokeratology contact lenses
  • Executive bifocal glasses

Dr. Cazares and Dr. Garvin are trained to provide care to slow the progression of myopia in children.

Schedule your eye exam today to see if your child is a candidate for myopia control!
