Myopia Management


Myopia, often referred to as nearsightedness, has become a growing concern in today's society. Our Myopia Treatment Program offers patients a choice of two equally effective methods to address myopia.



The age at which myopia appears is closely tied to its onset rate, with an earlier onset age carrying a higher risk of myopia progression.


If your child's prescription undergoes significant changes, it is likely that myopia will continue to progress over time.


While there isn't a conclusive genetic link, studies suggest an increased likelihood of myopia development when parents are nearsighted themselves.


The risk of myopia progression tends to be higher when a child engages in extensive reading and activities that require close-up work.

Historically, our concerns about myopia mainly centered around deteriorating eyesight and the need for stronger glasses.

However, we now recognize that there are additional worrying aspects beyond the need for thicker lenses.

Clinical evidence has confirmed that a higher degree of myopia significantly increases the likelihood of developing more severe eye conditions in later life.

These conditions include macular degeneration, retinal detachment, cataracts, and glaucoma, all of which can potentially lead to vision loss.

Until recently, researchers commonly believed that only the most advanced cases of myopia were responsible for the development of severe eye conditions.

However, recent studies have validated an increased risk of more serious eye diseases associated with any level of myopia. This shift in understanding has led researchers to the conclusion that no degree of myopia can be considered entirely safe.
