Myopia Control

Love your eyes, love your future

What is Myopia? 

Myopia is nearsightedness — where close objects appear clearly, but far away objects are blurry or out of focus. This is a common eye condition that our optometrists can help improve. We have treatments such as orthokeratology and products such as eyeglasses, contact lenses, scleral lenses, and more to help you see your best. We can also show you how to keep myopia from worsening and work through myopia treatment with you. 

Myopia is a common condition for many people, it’s not something you should have to suffer with forever. Our array of myopia treatment options can help you live your best life. Whether you prefer to try myopia correction or myopia control, we’re here to help. We can even detect nearsightedness in children so we can begin myopia control early.

Why It’s Important to Catch Early Signs of Myopia in Children

Myopia, or near-sightedness, is the most common childhood vision problem. It is also a sign that your child may develop sight-threatening eye diseases later in life, such as cataracts, glaucoma, retinal detachment, or macular degeneration. Myopia management is an eye care specialty that uses various treatments and tools to slow your child’s myopia progression, helping them see better for longer. 

Although standard contact lenses and eyeglasses help your child see, they do not treat the root causes of myopia or slow its progression. That’s why it’s important to begin myopia management early on. Depending on the progression of your child’s myopia, an eye doctor may prescribe atropine eye drops, multifocal lenses, or orthokeratology

If you’re concerned about your child’s vision long-term, contact Eyedeal Eye Care today. Our eye care professionals are ready to help you better understand your child’s nearsightedness and determine the best course for myopia management.

There’s no age limit for myopia control. If a child is at risk for high myopia, it’s better to start them on myopia control right away.

Optometrists consider nearsightedness of -6 diopters or higher as high myopia.

Contact lenses work the best for controlling your myopia. They’re the most available and consistently successful option.

best eye doctor near me

I left my visit pleased and with no questions.

Ivana B.

I had my first visit to this office a couple days ago and was nothing short of amazed! From the moment I walked in, front desk staff knew exactly who I was and were very welcoming. The doctor was also incredibly informative and did not leave me waiting long. Upon checkout, the ladies at the front were again very kind. I left my visit pleased and with no questions. Would definitely recommend anyone to make the switch to this practice!

The entire staff was professional and friendly.

Deborah S.

The entire staff was professional and friendly. I received the most thorough eye exam I’ve had in 40 years. Dr. Derrick spent plenty of time listening and recommending several options. New glasses were created in 15 minutes and I wore them home.

We had a very pleasurable experience.

Vincent F.

The front office staff was amazing and the doctor was great. We had our 18 mon twins with us and the front office helped keep them entertained. We had a very pleasurable experience.
