Myopia Management

Recent evidence shows that there is a world-wide epidemic of myopia (short-sightedness). We can identify those children at risk of myopia, and advise on strategies to delay or prevent the development of myopia. Where myopia is progressing, we can develop and implement a management plan to help reduce the progression of myopia using evidence-based therapies. This is crucial as myopia is a risk factor for glaucoma, retinal detachment, cataract and myopic macula degeneration in later life. If you are concerned about your child being or becoming short-sighted, please make an appointment for them to see us.
