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.
