Myopia increases the risk of developing a range of eye conditions and diseases, including glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration. Myopia can also increase the risk of experiencing retinal detachment and permanent vision loss. Mild myopia can increase this risk by 4 to 5 times, while severe myopia increases the risk by 10 times.
In fact, some studies show that more than 50% of retinal detachments (not related to trauma) are connected to myopia.
Myopia management is part of your child’s eye health. Our non-invasive treatments aim to slow or even stop myopia’s progression, maintaining your child’s quality of life. If you suspect your child has myopia, they should undergo treatment as soon as possible.
Our treatment plans are based on the latest research and tools, ensuring your child is getting the help they deserve. Please book an appointment today, and we can get to working designing a non-invasive treatment plan that can include customized contact lenses and special prescription eye drops, perfectly matched to your child’s needs.
What a great experience with Associated in Eyecare Optometrists. The staff was very professional and helpful. They took the time to listen with our concerns and were very understanding with our needs. Highly recommend going to see them.
Everyone here is always so kind and helpful. I never feel like they are rushing me to get to someone else. The doc sat with my son for an hour, patiently coaching and helping him get is first contacts in and out and in again. Thanks to all.
Everyone was super welcoming. The Doctor explained everything and showed me pictures of the backs of my eyes. They explained how everything worked with my insurance and was very helpful picking out my new glasses. I will recommend them to everyone I know.
