Working in a pediatric practice, I noticed that our patient’s glasses prescription often got worse over time. Early on, I recognized that this was more than an inconvenience; it can pose a serious risk to a child’s long-term vision. If the child’s myopia or amount of nearsightedness progresses, the child is at a higher risk of developing dangerous eye diseases later in life.
In early 2007, I developed a myopia management program at Visualeyes Optometry, with the mission to give our young patients better vision for life. Myopia management is the process of trying to decrease the progression of myopia or nearsightedness. In the past, it was thought that nothing could be done to slow the increase of myopia from year to year. However, research has now demonstrated that there are treatment options that successfully slow down the progression of myopia.
Our goal is to help children to have better vision now and reduce their future risks of serious eye diseases associated with myopia. It is rewarding to make a difference in my patient’s future eye care health.
