As your child grows their prescription can
increase. Using the latest clinical
research and careful monitoring we
can dramatically slow down how quickly
your child’s eyes are changing.
What is Myopia?
Myopia is more commonly referred to as nearsightedness, or the inability to see objects clearly in the distance. Blurry distance vision occurs as your child ages because the eye becomes longer as they grow.
What is Myopia Management?
