• What is Myopia?

    • Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, causes poor long-distance vision. In myopic eyes, the eyeball is either longer than normal, or the cornea is too curved, causing objects far away to appear blurry.
  • Why is myopia control important?

    • Controlling myopia reduces the risk of serious eye conditions including:

      • Cataracts
      • Glaucoma
      • Retinal Detachment
      • Myopia Maculopathy
    • Treatment Options

      • Glasses are not enough. Treatment options include:
        • Increased time outdoors
        • Limited screen time
        • Specialty fit gas permeable lenses
          • Gas Permeable lenses have been a great option for allowing patients with irregular corneas to see well for years. These lenses are used for patients who aren’t able to see well with glasses and for those with less than desirable surgical outcomes after LASIK or RK surgery. They are also a great option for patients ages 40+ who want to be able to see both distance and near.
    • Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT) / Orthokeratology

      • OrthoKeratology is a safe, non-surgical treatment option for nearsightedness or myopia that does not include the daytime use of contacts or glasses. CRT lenses are worn at night and change the curvature of the cornea while sleeping resulting in good vision throughout the day. For more information, visit www.paragonvision.com.
    • All treatment options include:

      • Insertion & removal training
      • Education on products for parents and users
      • Follow-up appointments
      • We will work with you to set up frequent, ongoing appointments to manage you or your child’s care and progress.
