Treat & Control Nearsightedness
Myopia, or nearsightedness, is the inability to see objects clearly at a distance. It is becoming increasingly common, especially in children. While there is no cure for myopia, there are treatment options that help correct myopia in the short-term and slow its progression in the long term. At Advance Eye Care Center, we have proudly offered myopia control options for many years, bringing our experience and expertise to every patient’s care. All of our doctors have been extensively trained and certified in myopia control techniques and technologies.
Multifocal Contact Lenses
Multifocal contact lenses contain two prescriptions: one to help you see close up and one to help you see far away. In other words, multifocal contact lenses correct myopia, but also allow you to see comfortably and more relaxed at near. The two prescriptions in the lens help prevent eye strain, which slows the progression of myopia, while correcting it.
MiSight Contact Lenses
MiSight Contact Lenses are a multifocal, 1-day disposable contact lens designed specifically to slow the progression of myopia in children. These contact lenses are soft and replaced daily, making them comfortable and convenient for use by children. They have been shown to substantially reduce the worsening of myopia and involve fewer appointments than some other myopia treatments.
Spectacle Lenses (Myovision & Myopilux)
Myovision and Myopilux are eyeglass lens options designed to treat and slow the worsening of myopia in children. Myovision and Myopilux are bifocal lenses similar to those worn by adults with presbyopia. The two prescriptions help reduce eye strain and ultimately slow the progression of myopia.
