Myopia management blends the art and the science from the past 20 yrs of research and enables us to slow and sometimes stop the stretching of the eye as your child grows. This helps to prevent the increasing myopia as well as the development of long term pathology associated with high myopic prescriptions. The team of experts at Lifetime Eyecare Solutions are happy to offer several management options for your child’s myopia. Our recommended strategy will depend on how far along your child’s myopia is, their age, and their comfort level with drops or contact lenses. The risk factors for their potential progression depends on a number of factors such as heredity, gender, age, time doing near work and the amount of time outdoors. So you can see this is a multifactorial problem that needs a specific analysis of the risk to make a treatment plan that is focused on the best outcomes for the child.
