Myopia Management

Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a condition where objects up close appear clear, while objects in the distance appear blurry. It often starts during childhood and tends to worsen over time. That’s why it’s crucial to control its progression as soon as possible with the help of a trusted eye care provider. 

At Advanced Vision Care in Mansfield, Fort Worth, and DeSoto, Texas, and Cedar Hill Eye Care in Cedar Hill, Texas, our eye doctors offer myopia treatment to stop or slow down myopia progression in children.  

What are the treatment options for myopia?   

If we detect signs of myopia during an eye exam, we’ll develop a myopia management plan to fit your child’s specific needs. Our myopia management programs may include various treatment options, such as: 

  • Orthokeratology: These specialized contact lenses gently reshape your child’s cornea while they sleep, temporarily correcting their vision. This technique can help slow down myopia progression and allow your child to see clearly during the day without needing glasses or contacts.  
  • Atropine eye drops: These eye drops are often used for dilation during routine exams, but they can also be used in small concentrations to slow down myopia progression. The drops work by relaxing the focusing mechanism in the eye, which slows down the progression of myopia. 
  • Multifocal contact lenses: These contact lenses are designed to help children see clearly at all distances. Research shows that multifocal lenses are particularly effective in reducing myopia progression when compared to single-vision contact lenses.
