myopia information

MYOPIA, or nearsightedness, is rapidly increasing among school age children. In America, more than 40% of the population is nearsighted and that number is increasing at an alarming rate. This incidence is multifactorial: genetics, screen time, and insufficient time spent outdoors.

At Premier Family Vision Care we manage myopia by using overnight Atropine therapy, Orthokeratology, and the MiSight lens.

 

MiSight treatment is a 1-day disposable, soft contact lens that is comfortable to wear during the day. This FDA approved contact lens corrects distance vision as well as slows down progression of myopia.

​Orthokeratology lenses provide the benefit of clear daytime vision without glasses or contacts while slowing down myopic progression. These contacts are gas permeable (hard) lenses worn overnight. This FDA approved treatment changes corneal curvature during sleep so your child’s vision is perfect during the day.
