Myopia Management

Myopia Management at Vision I Care

Welcome to Vision I Care, where we prioritize the long-term health of your eyes through our comprehensive Myopia Management program. Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a common vision issue that can impact people of all ages. Our dedicated team, led by Dr. Van Huynh, is committed to providing personalized and effective solutions to manage and control myopia progression.

Understanding Myopia

Myopia occurs when the eyeball is too long or the cornea has too much curvature, causing light to focus in front of the retina instead of directly on it. The prevalence of myopia has been on the rise, particularly in younger populations. Addressing myopia early is crucial to mitigate potential complications associated with high myopia, such as retinal detachment and other eye diseases.

  • Personalized Approach: Our Myopia Management program is tailored to each individual. We consider factors such as lifestyle, age, and the progression of myopia to develop a customized plan that suits your specific needs.
  • Advanced Treatments: Utilizing cutting-edge techniques and evidence-based treatments, we aim to slow or halt the progression of myopia. Our commitment to staying at the forefront of myopia management ensures that you receive the latest and most effective solutions.
  • Experienced Team: Dr. Van Huynh and our experienced team have a proven track record in myopia management. We have successfully helped numerous patients control the progression of their myopia, promoting healthier eyes and clearer vision.
  • Family-Centered Care: We understand the importance of myopia management for children. Our family-friendly environment ensures that both parents and children feel comfortable and informed throughout the process.

Our Myopia Management program includes:

  • Orthokeratology (Ortho-K): Overnight contact lenses that reshape the cornea to provide clear vision during the day, slowing myopia progression.
  • Atropine Eye Drops: Low-dose atropine eye drops have shown effectiveness in controlling myopia progression.
  • Multifocal Contact Lenses: Specially designed contact lenses that help manage myopia.

Is your child experiencing nearsightedness? At Vision I Care, we understand the importance of addressing myopia early to manage the risk of potential eye diseases later in life.

Myopia, or nearsightedness, significantly increases the risk of sight-threatening eye diseases in the future, including cataracts, glaucoma, retinal detachment, and macular degeneration. The higher the degree of myopia, the greater the risk. While eyeglasses and standard contact lenses can correct vision, they don’t address the underlying cause or slow myopia progression. This is where myopia management becomes crucial.

If you’re concerned about your child’s long-term eye health and vision, Vision I Care is here to help. Our myopia management program aims to provide effective solutions for your child’s unique vision needs.
