We’re here to help your family understand and manage myopia every step of the way—contact us to schedule your appointment today.
The Importance of Myopia Control
Children with myopia have difficulty seeing things far away clearly. This can make everyday activities like seeing clearly in classrooms, playing sports, and even watching TV a challenge.
Depending on your child’s specific needs, our team can prescribe myopia management options that include:
- NaturalVue contact lenses
- MiSight 1 day lenses
- Low-dose atropine drops
Preserving Vision with Myopia Control
Effective management of myopia can slow down its progression and help reduce the risks associated with high myopia later in life, such as:
- Retinal tears and detachment
- Myopic macular degeneration
Our team at Ladera Ranch Optometry will work closely with your family to develop a customized treatment strategy to help preserve the future of your child’s vision.
Different Signs & Symptoms of Myopia
Myopia can affect your children in different ways. It’s important to keep an eye on the different signs and symptoms, which can include:
- Eye strain and headaches
- Blurry vision when looking at faraway objects
- Squinting to see distant objects
- Sitting too close to screens
If your child is experiencing these symptoms or you notice these symptoms, a comprehensive eye exam with our team can help.
Our Myopia Control Methods
At Ladera Ranch Optometry, we want you to feel confident in your child’s vision care. When we provide comprehensive eye examinations and use diagnostic technology to manage myopia, our experienced professionals will guide your family through the process, explaining each step and treatment so you can understand your options.
MiSight Contact Lenses
MiSight 1 day lenses are soft contact lenses that can assist with managing myopia for children. These lenses feature ActivControl technology, which helps correct and decelerate myopia progression in children aged 8–12 years old at the beginning of their treatment.
By altering the way light focuses on the retina, these lenses can help slow myopia progression by signaling the eye to decrease its growth. Clinical studies have demonstrated that MiSight contacts can reduce myopia by an average of 59%, and many kids find them preferable to glasses.
Natural Vue Contact Lenses
NaturalVue contact lenses are multifocal contact lenses designed specifically for myopia management and are clinically proven to help control the progression of myopia. They can be a convenient daily disposable option for optimal hygiene and comfort.
Low-Dose Atropine Eye Drops
Low-dose atropine eye drops can help manage myopia by suppressing the eye’s growth. However, we might still recommend wearing contact lenses or glasses during the day to help keep your child’s vision clear.
Setting Your Children Up for Success
We believe in a collaborative approach to care. Working together, we can better understand your child’s eyes and develop a successful myopia control plan.
