Is Your Child Struggling with Short-Sightedness?


Myopia management can help lower the risk of eye disease later in life.

Why is Myopia Management Important?

Myopia significantly increases the risk of developing sight-threatening eye diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma, retinal detachment, and macular degeneration.

The higher your child’s myopia, the greater the risk. Eyeglasses and standard contact lenses can correct vision, but they do not treat the underlying cause of myopia or slow its progression.
