Preserve the Health of Your Child’s Eyes

The health of your child’s eyes can affect how they learn, play, and develop. With the presence of myopia, they can struggle to find success both in and out of the classroom.

The prevalence of myopia spans worldwide and affects 40% of the United States population alone. This number is projected to increase by the year 2050.

Myopia is a growing concern, and Great Hills Eye Care is proud and excited to offer myopia management solutions for your family. Schedule your child’s next eye exam today to protect their sight and prevent vision issues associated with myopia.

What Is Myopia?

Myopia is often referred to as nearsightedness because it allows you to see close-up objects clearly, but distant objects appear blurry. It occurs when the eye grows too long, or the cornea has too much curvature. Light entering the eye is not able to properly bend and focus onto the retina, causing blurred vision.

Myopia is often detected in childhood and diagnosed during a comprehensive eye exam. Signs your child may be struggling with myopia include:

  • Excessive squinting
  • Needing to sit close to the TV or at the front of the class
  • Frequent eye rubbing
  • Being seemingly unaware of distant objects

Myopia Management Methods

Slowing the progression of myopia is important for the future of your little one’s vision. In the early stages of myopia, it can be challenging to navigate the world without glasses or contact lenses. As it progresses, vision becomes increasingly blurred and the risk of developing sight-threatening issues such as cataracts, glaucoma, and retinal detachment increases.

The good news is there are solutions available to prevent myopia from worsening. At Great Hills Eye Care, we offer myopia management methods to help protect your child’s vision and eye health.

MiSight 1-day Contact Lenses

MiSight 1-day contact lenses by CooperVision help slow the progression of myopia while simultaneously correcting the refractive error. These single-use, soft contact lenses are available for children as young as 8 and have been shown to reduce myopia progression by up to 59%.

With these lenses, there are 2 treatment zones which create myopic defocus with image focus in front of the retina (rather than behind it to slow axial elongation) and 2 correction zones correct myopia in all gaze positions.

These zones work together to provide clear vision while slowing the elongation of the eyeball, and therefore the progression of myopia.

Take the First Step Towards Clear Vision

The path to better vision and effectively managing myopia starts with a comprehensive eye exam. Schedule your child’s next eye exam today to protect their eye health and vision.

We look forward to helping your family achieve their best vision yet!
