Taking Control of Myopia

We love watching children laugh, play, and learn. But vision problems can get in the way of them enjoying life’s pleasures. Myopia, or nearsightedness, affects the ability to see objects in the distance. When your child has myopia, they could struggle in school, recreation, and sports.

That said, our eye doctors can help control the progression of myopia in young children. Bringing your little one in for their regular eye exam is the best way to determine if they have myopia. From there, we can work together to change the shape of their life.

For myopia control in Scottsdale, visit the optometrists at Eye Lab.

What Is Myopia?

As children’s eyes grow, their eyes can become too elongated, or their corneas (the front of the eye) can become too curved, causing myopia, also known as nearsightedness. The elongated shape causes light that enters their eyes not to focus correctly, making objects in the distance blurry.

How Myopia Can Be Controlled

Diagnosing myopia early means we can work on a management plan to control the way your child’s eyes grow.

MiSight 1 day

MiSight 1 day contact lenses are a safe and effective way to reduce the elongation of their eyes and minimize the effects of myopia. We use this proven technique to help shape your child’s eyes and prevent myopia from developing and worsening as they age.

Myopia control using MiSight 1 day can be prescribed to children ages 8–12. The sooner we begin their myopia control, the more likely we will be able to slow its progression.

Why Your Child Deserves Myopia Control

When myopia is left untreated, the eyeball continues elongating, which can make your little one’s myopia worse. 

If your child develops high myopia, their risk of developing eye diseases increases. Myopia control can help reduce their risk of developing eye diseases like cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration.

Is My Child Nearsighted?

Protect Their Sight

One of the best things you can do for your child’s eyesight is to bring them in for regular eye exams. Even though they may not have complaints about their vision, their optometrist can identify issues that are going on inside their eyes. 

Preventing the progression of myopia starts at a young age. See if your child needs myopia control.
