Correcting Eyesight for Healthy Vision
Here at The Institute for Control of Eye Myopia, we use our clinical experience and scientific research to help determine how best to correct, not just control, myopia from an early age. True myopia means that the eyeball has grown too long, something that can only be truly corrected through surgery. Corneal reshaping surgery is the only accepted method of permanent vision correction. Both adults and children can undergo these corrective surgeries.
Myopia may be reversed through refractive eye surgeries like LASIK, PRK and Cataract removal. Rather than controlling or slowing the symptoms of myopia, these surgeries are designed to correct the cause of myopia through Corneal reshaping. Surgeons actually flatten the curve of the cornea in myopic individuals, reducing the length of the eyeball and correcting the vision problem. If our doctors believe corrective surgery is the best option for your child, we’ll work with you to find a well-regarded doctor to perform the surgery.
There is no non-surgical method that has been proven to permanently correct myopia, but at the Institute for Control of Eye Myopia in Children our research has help yield several effective methods of treatment that slow the progress of myopia and reduce the risk of its development. From medicines, to special contact lenses, to lifestyle changes, our doctors will evaluate the best method for treating your child’s individual needs.
