WHAT IS VISUAL MYOPIA MANAGEMENT?
We all know prevention is better than cure. Myopia Management works to slow the progression of short-sightedness in young children.
Sometimes when children’s eyes are developing, short-sightedness (or myopia, which means you can only perceive images closer to you clearly) can progress quickly.
This can be distressing to children and their parents. Or worse still, a child may not realise or be able to articulate their rapidly deteriorating vision. It’s why it’s so important to have children’s eyes tested under the age of 8.
Myopia progression can happen fast in some cases, meaning a child’s eyesight starts to deteriorate quickly. Rapid eye sight deterioration can lead to complications in later life such as an increased risk in glaucoma, cataracts and Macular Degeneration.
The good news is a new treatment exists which can SLOW the progression of myopia in children. It can be life changing for a child who’s eyesight is deteriorating quickly.
This treatment is called “MYOPIA MANAGEMENT” and Crowleys Opticians Optometrists are trained to IDENTIFY and PRESCRIBE to help slow your child’s myopia.
