Myopia Management

Our Myopia Management Program

At Columbia Point Eye Care, we offer a comprehensive myopia management program tailored to the specific needs of each child. Our highly skilled and experienced optometrists employ evidence-based techniques to control the progression of myopia and preserve the long-term health of your child's eyes.

What is Myopia?

Myopia, commonly known as nearsightedness, is a refractive error where distant objects appear blurry, while nearby objects remain clear. The prevalence of myopia has been increasing rapidly in recent years, affecting not only the quality of vision but also overall eye health if left unmanaged.

The Importance of Myopia Management

Myopia can progress and worsen over time if not managed properly. Children with developing myopia are at a higher risk of developing sight-threatening conditions, such as retinal detachment, glaucoma, and macular degeneration, later in life. Early intervention and personalized myopia management strategies are key to minimizing these risks and maintaining good eye health.

Treatment Options

Our interventions may include different strategies, such as specialty soft contact lenses, orthokeratology (Ortho-K)contact lenses, or prescription eye drops. We carefully consider these options to slow down the progression of myopia and enhance visual clarity, depending on the age, lifestyle, and visual needs of your child.
