Myopia Management

Myopia or short-sightedness in children is becoming more common. Thankfully the progression of myopia can be significantly reduced if it is managed early.

Myopia Management

Myopia, also known as shortsightedness, affects approximately one in three people in the UK and is expected to impact half of the global population by 2050. This condition causes distant objects to appear blurry and is particularly concerning when it develops in young children, as their eyes continue to grow, potentially leading to rapidly progressing myopia. The earlier myopia starts, the higher the risk to eye health due to increased myopia levels. Regular eye examinations are crucial for early detection and management, ensuring your child’s vision remains clear and healthy as they grow.

At our practice, we offer comprehensive myopia management tailored to your child’s needs. Our solutions include MiSight® daily disposable contact lenses, which have been shown to reduce myopia progression by up to 59%, and Orthokeratology (Ortho-K) lenses, worn overnight to reshape the cornea and provide clear vision during the day. Additionally, we provide MiYOSMART spectacle lenses by HOYA, designed with innovative technology to slow myopia progression by an average of 60%. Our experienced optometrists will guide you through the best options for your child, ensuring effective myopia management and optimal eye health.

To begin your myopia management journey, schedule an appointment with our dedicated team. By taking proactive steps now, you can help manage your child’s myopia and protect their vision for the future. Contact us today to book your consultation and discover the best care for your little one.
