Myopia, or nearsightedness, is becoming increasingly common, particularly among children. Along with that, severe myopia can increase the risk of developing other eye conditions later in life, including cataracts, glaucoma, and retinal detachment. At H Rubin Vision Center in Sumter, SC, we provide comprehensive eye exams to learn more about your condition and treatment to preserve your vision.

What is Myopia Control?

Myopia control is a proactive approach to eye care that focuses on slowing the rate at which the condition worsens in children. This can be achieved through various methods, including the following:

•             Specialized contact lenses: Certain types of contact lenses, like bifocals and multifocals, are designed to help eyes focus at various distances and reduce the progression of myopia.

•             Orthokeratology: These specially designed rigid contact lenses are worn overnight to gently reshape the cornea while your child sleeps. The reshaping can temporarily improve their vision without the need for glasses or contacts during the day.

•             Low-dose atropine eye drops: Atropine is a medication that works by relaxing the focusing muscles in the eye. While traditionally used to dilate pupils for eye exams, low-dose atropine has shown promise in slowing myopia progression in children.
