Myopia Management FAQs

What is myopia management?

Myopia management uses certain treatments and technologies to slow or even halt your child's myopia progression. Our myopia control program in Sanford is unique as we have the latest technology and experience to ensure your child's vision remains stable and healthy for years to come.

Is myopia management necessary?

Myopia is more than just poor vision. Childhood myopia raises the risk of developing sight-threatening eye diseases later in life, such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and cataracts. Speak to your eye doctor about the best ways to minimize your child’s risk.

At what age does myopia (nearsightedness) usually start?

Myopia can begin as early as 6 and will usually progress until roughly age 20. The longer it progresses, and the higher the prescription, the greater your child’s risk of sight-threatening eye conditions later in life.

When should my child start myopia management?

For optimal results, myopia management should be started as soon as possible. That said, myopia control can help children and teens of all ages.

Some family members recommended Advanced EyeCare recently and my husband and I are so pleased with o... ur switch. Dr. Christy and her team did a marvelous job assessing my vision and providing me with a more accurate contact lens Rx. I returned today for a follow-up and had a marvelous tech, "Sam", who had the best personality. He did a great job explaining everything, was attentive and had a good sense of humor. I could tell how serious he took his job. Keep up the great work! Thank you Advanced EyeCare Michelle Medina
