What Is Myopia?

Myopia develops during childhood, when the eyeballs are experiencing rapid growth. The degree of myopia can progress gradually or rapidly, especially from ages 8-18. This is not just a matter of needing stronger glasses; if the myopia continues to progress, the child is at a higher risk of developing dangerous eye diseases, such as cataracts, retinal detachment, macular degeneration, and glaucoma, later in life. These conditions can lead to permanent loss of vision and even blindness. Our Myopia Control treatments address these issues.

We Treat the Causes of Myopia

Myopia (nearsightedness) is a pandemic. By 2050, half of the world’s population is expected to be diagnosed with myopia. That’s worrying, because having myopia raises the risk of developing serious eye diseases later in life. Myopia management, which entails the use of eye drops, specialized contact lenses or multifocal glasses, can help slow the often rapid visual deterioration caused by myopia in children. If you’re concerned that your child’s vision is deteriorating, contact Silicon Valley Eye Physicians today. We can help.
