Myopia Control Management Part 2

In childhood there is an opportunity to slow down or halt the progression of myopia through optical or pharmacological interventions. It is therefore important for children to have a comprehensive eye exam with an eye care practitioner in order to prevent complications later in life. Visual impairment from myopia can be corrected with spectacles, contact lenses or refractive surgery. It is also important for people with myopia to have regular eye exams to look for vision threatening complications such as retinal detachment, myopic maculopathy and glaucoma. Laser Vision Correction is well established as a safe and effective means to correct myopia and other refractive errors. The cost of the technology is rapidly falling making it a more accessible investment in your eye health.
