Myopia Control in Milford, CT

Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a common condition in which people have trouble seeing something in the distance but can still generally see objects up close clearly. Someone with myopia may struggle to decipher writing across the room or details from afar. This condition is often the result of the eyeball being too long or the cornea being too curved and typically begins in childhood.

Treating Progressive Myopia

When a child is diagnosed with myopia, they are usually prescribed eyeglasses or contact lenses to correct their vision. In some cases, the condition will stabilize by the time the child becomes an adult, but other times, myopia can get progressively worse as the eyeball shape continues to grow longer over time as the child ages.

When progressive myopia occurs, a person may experience eye strain, headaches, and fatigue after looking at objects in the distance for an extended period. Those with progressive myopia are also at a higher risk of developing eye health problems later in life such as retinal detachment, glaucoma, cataracts, or macular degeneration.  

Because progressive myopia can negatively impact a person’s eye health, it is important to get regular eye exams that screen for these conditions. If your doctor can catch myopia at an earlier stage, they will be able to create a myopia management plan that may help you or your child avoid some eye health problems later on.
