Myopia has become a worldwide public health issue

So let’s learn more

We Believe Myopia Control is Something We Should Focus On

Myopia Control at Carrot LASIK & Eye Center

Myopia Control is the term used to describe specific treatments aimed at preventing the progression of nearsightedness in children. Myopia control prevents the progression of myopia through treatments that slow down the lengthening of the eye in children and teens. Through myopia control, patients may also benefit from reduced risk of developing conditions such as cataract development, glaucoma, retinal detachment, and macular degeneration. Myopia control measures include topical medications, increased time outside or decreased screen time, dual-focus contact lenses, and orthokeratology (gas permeable contact lenses that temporarily reshape the cornea).

Myopia Control provides an opportunity for early intervention in the lifelong goal of improving refractive error. Carrot LASIK & Eye Center is committed to working toward the reduction of myopia at all ages.

My Kids’ Vision

Myopia (also known as short sightedness) typically presents at school age and is on the rise.

Although easily corrected by glasses or contact lenses, it can have long term eye health implications if allowed to worsen unchecked.

The good news is that recent research is suggesting ways to prevent onset of myopia or slow its progression.

This short survey will help you identify risk factors for development of myopia, and if your child is already myopic result in advice on how to slow further progression.
