Myopia Management at Cedar See Vision Center, Middletown, DE

At Cedar See Vision Center, we understand the importance of your child's eye health and vision. Myopia, commonly known as nearsightedness, is a condition where distant objects appear blurry while close objects remain clear. It affects millions of children worldwide and can progress rapidly if left unmanaged. However, with our specialized Myopia Management services, we aim to slow down or even halt the progression of myopia in your child's eyes.

What is Myopia?

Myopia occurs when the eyeball grows too long or the cornea is too curved, causing light rays to focus in front of the retina instead of directly on it. This results in blurry distance vision. Myopia typically develops during childhood and tends to worsen as the child grows.

Types of Myopia Control

  1. Orthokeratology (Ortho-K): This non-surgical treatment involves wearing specially designed rigid contact lenses overnight. These lenses reshape the cornea while sleeping, providing clear vision during the day without the need for glasses or contact lenses.

  2. Atropine Eye Drops: Low-dose atropine eye drops are used to dilate the pupil and temporarily relax the focusing mechanism of the eye, helping to slow down the progression of myopia.

  3. Multifocal Eyeglasses and Contact Lenses: These lenses have different zones for near and distance vision, which can help reduce eye strain and slow myopia progression.

  4. MiSight Myopia Management Program: Specifically designed soft contact lenses that have been clinically proven to slow down the progression of myopia in children.

  5. NaturalVue Enhanced Multifocal: Contact lenses with a unique design that provides clear vision at all distances while simultaneously slowing down myopia progression.


MiSight Myopia Management Program

One of the key pillars of our Myopia Management services is the MiSight Myopia Management Program. MiSight is a groundbreaking soft contact lens specifically designed to address the progression of myopia in children. These lenses not only correct existing myopia but also work actively to slow down its advancement. By utilizing innovative optics and a unique design, MiSight lenses help to redistribute retinal defocus, which is a significant factor in myopia progression. Numerous clinical studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of MiSight in reducing the rate of myopia progression, making it an excellent option for parents seeking proactive solutions for their child's vision health. At Cedar See Vision Center, we are proud to offer the MiSight Myopia Management Program as part of our comprehensive approach to myopia control, ensuring that your child receives the best possible care for their long-term eye health and visual wellbeing.
