Correcting Eyesight for Healthy Vision
Doctors who qualify as members of The Institute for Control of Eye Myopia use their clinical experience combined with information gleaned from peer-reviewed 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, however it is possible to minimize the need for vision correction surgery if myopia control is started early enough for children.
Myopia may be reversed in adults 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 we present the scientific studies regarding treatments that have been proven to slow the progress of myopia and reduce the risk of it increasing. From medicines, to special contact lenses, to lifestyle changes, our doctors will evaluate the best method for treating your child’s individual needs.
Nearsightedness is an issue that can hinder your child’s learning and set them back from an early age. Whether they already suffer from the symptoms of myopia or show signs of these symptoms developing, it is crucial that you contact a highly skilled optometrist in your area.
