Myopia (nearsightedness) is a refractive error that affects your ability to clearly see objects at a distance. The condition affects the vision of both adults and children.
Typically, light enters your eye and focuses directly on the retina to give you clear vision. When you have myopia, the length of your eye is longer than usual, which causes light to focus on the front of your retina.
Mayo Family Eye Care LLC offers personalized myopia management services to improve your vision and prevent unnecessary eye strain.
Myopia often develops in childhood and continues to worsen as the eyes grow. Many teenagers experience worsening vision until their eyes stop growing around age 20.
You or your child may benefit from the myopia management services at Mayo Family Eye Care LLC if you:
While myopia isn’t a harmful condition itself, it can increase the risk that you or your child will develop eye diseases later in life that can negatively affect your vision, including glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration.
The Mayo Family Eye Care LLC team uses several strategies to manage myopia in kids and adults. They customize a management plan to your specific needs based on your age, symptoms, and overall eye health.
Your myopia management plan may involve:
Prescription glasses improve your vision and ensure your eyes are working together when focusing on objects at a distance.
You or your child might also benefit from bifocal or multifocal lenses that help you see more clearly at different distances.
Contact lenses can provide a wider field of view than glasses can. They may also be a more convenient way to improve your vision if you play sports or other activities where glasses may get in the way.
A variety of contact lens styles and brands are available at Mayo Family Eye Care LLC, including soft lenses and speciality lenses.
