Myopia Management & Myopia Therapy

Myopia management refers to treatments used to control the progression of myopia (nearsightedness) and mild astigmatism. It's an excellent option for those who want daytime freedom from glasses or contacts.

Myopia Significantly Increases The Risk of Serious Eye Diseases

What is Myopia?

Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a refractive error that causes your eyes to elongate in size, focusing light in front of your retina instead of on it, leading to blurry distance vision.

Aside from affecting your distance vision, high myopia can increase your risk of developing eye diseases or experience vision loss caused by glaucoma, retinal tears, holes, and detachments.

Although there is no cure for myopia, it can be treated with ortho-k lenses, atropine eye drops, prescription eyeglasses and contact lenses, and even corrected through LASIK surgery in adults.  

Symptoms of Myopia
 

Myopia causes objects in the distance to appear blurry. If you have myopia, there are several other symptoms to look for, including:

  • Squinting to see clearly

  • Eyestrain

  • Headaches

  • Sitting closer to the TV or in front of the classroom

  • Being unaware of objects in the distance

  • Excessive blinking

  • Frequent rubbing of the eyes

Myopia Epidemic

Childhood myopia rates are increasing. Many researchers believe reduced outdoor time and increased screen time on devices are part of the problem. Myopia often leads to struggles in school and activities for your child due to poor vision, as well as increased eye disease risks.

Myopia Management Treatment Plans

Anchor 1

Please note that while we offer various treatment plans, the myopia management plan you join is based on your eyes and the best way suited to halt the progression of myopia in your eyes.

Orthokeratology / Ortho-K Lenses

Ortho-K lenses are like braces and retainers for your eyes! They'll temporarily reshape your cornea while you sleep and allow you to experience clear vision during the day.

Ortho-K lenses effectively halt the progression of myopia and can even provide temporary nearsightedness correction.

Remember, the results are temporary, so you'll need to continue to wear the ortho-k lenses regularly at night to maintain optimum results. Long-term use of Ortho-K lenses will not affect your vision prescription once you stop using them.

Ortho-K for adults is a non-invasive and reversible alternative to refractive surgeries such as LASIK and PRK, and may be an option for individuals who aren’t candidates for a laser vision correction procedure.

Atropine Eye Drops​

Atropine eye drops are used during annual eye exams to dilate your eyes by disabling the focusing mechanism in the eye. 

 

Low doses of Atropine eye drops can be used to control myopia by relieving focusing fatigue. They can be used alone or in conjunction with ortho-k lenses and are normally administered every night before bed. Those who use atropine drops generally wear glasses or contacts during the day.

MiSight Myopia Control Soft Lenses

MiSight lenses are the first FDA-approved soft lenses for controlling myopia progression in children. They are dual-focus contact lenses worn during the day and are designed to redirect how the light hits the retina. The center part of the lens corrects your vision while the outer part of the lens has concentric rings designed to direct light to focus on the retina. This “tricks” the eye into not growing too long.

Biofinity Multifocal Contacts worn in conjunction with using Atropine eyedrops can help with myopia control.

Myopia Management & Therapy Expectations and Costs

This page was updated 4/22/2024

Myopia Management treatment is an ongoing process that requires multiple visits and dedication to the process. 

We will see you for:
          - Initial Consultation to determine the best plan for you or your child.

             This may be a combination of Myopia Management Lenses and Atropine drops or                 one or the other.

          - Use, wear, and care training. 

          - Once the lenses arrive, we will see you frequently:

             The morning after you wear them the first time, one week later, two weeks later,
             one/two months after, and then every three months following that. 

Depending on your eyes, you may use up to three sets of ortho-k lenses each year as your corneas are reshaped. These lens exchanges are included in the annual package. 
Please note that the lenses may put a strain on your eyes without you noticing it, or it may cause troubles such as corneal damage, so be sure come to your scheduled visits and communicate with Dr. Kerry.
