At the Optic One Family Eye Care Myopia Control Center, we understand that myopia is more than just an inconvenience. Moderate to high myopia can lead to serious eye conditions later in life, such as retinal detachment, macular degeneration, glaucoma, and cataracts. That's why we offer myopia management solutions to help.

Our myopia management treatment options, including eye drops, multifocal contact lenses, or orthokeratology (ortho-k), are designed to slow down the progression of myopia and provide your child with clearer, sharper vision and a higher quality of life. We are dedicated to ensuring your child's long-term eye health and visual comfort.

Understanding Myopia

Myopia, commonly known as nearsightedness, occurs when the eye grows too long from front to back, leading to light focusing in front of the retina instead of directly on it. As a result, distant objects appear blurry while nearby objects remain clear. This condition often develops during childhood when the eyes are undergoing rapid growth, and it tends to progress until the late teen years or early twenties.

But here’s the good news: myopia can be effectively managed through the specialized methods provided at our dedicated eye care practice in Cinnaminson.

What is Myopia Management?

Myopia management refers to a series of treatments used by eye doctors to slow down the progression of myopia in children. These treatments help reduce the risk of future eye disease associated with myopia development and progression. Numerous studies have shown that these treatments can effectively slow down the progression of nearsightedness in kids and teens.

At the Optic One Family Eye Care Myopia Control Center, we provide personalized treatment options customized to meet the specific needs of each child. We have been serving the Cinnaminson area for four decades, so you can trust the expertise of our experienced doctors to closely monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of the chosen treatment.

  • Kids and teens with progressive myopia (-0.25DS or more in the last 2 years)
  • Kids at risk of developing myopia due to family history (one or two myopic parents)
  • Kids and teens who spend over 3 hours a day doing near work (reading, studying, writing, using digital devices like phones and laptops)
  • Kids and teens who spend less than 6 hours a week outdoors
  • Those under the age of 16

Can Myopia Management Work for Adults?

While the primary focus of myopia management is on pediatric patients, we also offer myopia solutions for adults with progressive myopia. It's never too late to take steps toward managing myopia and reducing its progression.
