Myopia Management

More than 40% of the population are myopic or nearsighted. That number is increasing at an alarming rate, especially among school-aged children. The upward incidence of myopia in today’s children can be attributed to a combination of genetics and environment. There are three widely accepted and FDA approved ways to reduce myopic progression. MISIGHT Lenses the first FDA approved soft lenses that reduce the progression of myopia in children. Orthokeratology which utilizes custom designed molds which are worn at night to gently reshape the front of the eye. The molds are removed in the morning and the person can see clearly all day without contact lenses or eyeglasses. Atropine Drops can be compounded and used alone at bedtime or in conjunction with the above methods to reduce myopic progression. The above methods can all be used individually or in combination as early as 5 years of age up until the eye stops growing which is in the mid-twenties.
