go anywhere else for your myopia treatment.

What is Myopia?

Nearsightedness, also known as myopia, is a common eye condition that affects a significant and growing portion of the population — over 40% of the American population has the condition. Myopia occurs when the eye changes shape and elongates so it looks more like a football, which causes light to focus in front of the retina instead of on it. This is what causes myopia’s symptoms, which include blurred vision, eye strain, and headaches.

Why Aren’t Glasses Enough for Myopia?

Glasses can only help you see clearly. Because myopia is caused by the eye changing shape, eyeglasses cannot do anything to prevent its progression. To effectively treat the root cause of myopia, something needs to help the eyes to impact their shape. This means that the most effective treatment plans often include specialty contact lenses.

How We Manage Myopia

The short answer? Holistically — and by taking your unique circumstances into account. Myopia is caused by several different factors, including too much screen use and near work, genetics, a lack of daylight exposure, and even too little physical activity. We consider your family lifestyle and child’s individual needs, and then your eye doctor will develop a customized myopia management plan that works for you and your child.


MiSight are FDA approved, single use soft contacts that are specifically designed for myopia management in children aged 8-12 years old. These contact lenses will correct your child’s vision and can help slow down myopia’s progression.

What are contact lenses for myopia?

Myopia-specific contact lenses correct nearsightedness, and some specialty lenses even help the eye hold its round shape, which may help slow myopia’s progression and prevent it from continuing to change. There are various types of lenses that work well for myopia, including multifocals, RGPs, and soft contacts like MiSight.

Do I need eye surgery for myopia?

Eye surgery is not necessary, but it can be a valuable option for adults who prefer a long-term solution to reduce or eliminate their dependence on glasses or contact lenses. Please contact your eye doctor to discuss whether an eye surgery such as LASIK or PRK is right for you.

Is there a cure for myopia?

This is currently no permanent cure which will reverse myopia. However, there are treatments which have been shown to reduce how badly nearsightedness progresses when proper myopia management techniques are used on a child or adolescent. These treatments can permanently reduce the impact on their vision, as well as reduce their risk of developing other eye conditions later in life, like glaucoma and astigmatism.

What are treatment options for myopia?

There are many treatment options that are open to patients, including eye drops, MiSight soft contacts, hygiene lid wipes, and more. The most effective myopia treatment plans are tailored to the patient’s specific needs and individual circumstances.
