Is Myopia Control Right For Your Child?
Myopia management or myopia control describes the domain of childhood eye care which is concerned with slowing down the typical worsening of short-sightedness (myopia) which occurs in childhood.
Myopia control is important for children, because the developmental years are when their eyes change the most. This can lead to high prescriptions and a higher chance of developing these sight-threatening diseases in the future.
Myopia control can protect a child’s eye health in the future. Doctors are looking at ways to slow the progression of myopia in children. One form of treatment is wearing a scleral contact lens overnight to correct blurry distance vision during the day. Our practice uses MiSight® 1 day contact lenses by Cooper Vision for myopia control.
