Why Does My Child's Nearsightedness Need to Be Managed?


Myopia significantly increases the risk of developing sight-threatening eye diseases later in life, such as cataracts, glaucoma, retinal detachment and macular degeneration. The higher your child’s myopia, the greater the risk.

Although eyeglasses and standard contact lenses can correct a person’s vision, they do not treat the underlying cause of myopia or slow its progression. This is where myopia management comes in.

If you’re concerned about your child’s long-term eye health and vision, contact Eyeland Vision's Myopia Management Center today. We can help.

Myopia Management Q&A with Dr. Kerry Holt

My child has been getting a lot of screen time during COVID-19. Has screen time affected my child’s vision?

The more screen time that someone has, the greater chance that myopia (nearsightedness) will increase.

Besides not needing a higher prescription in the future, are there other long-term benefits to myopia management?

Yes, definitely. As myopia increases, there is a higher chance of other eye diseases such as retinal tears, glaucoma, and other conditions that can affect the health of the eye.

How do I know which myopia management method is best for my child?

There are more treatments available than there were in the past. The best thing to do for your child is to speak to your optometrist. At Eyeland Vision, we will determine with you which method would be most beneficial for your child.

My spouse and I don’t wear glasses. Does my child still need to have an eye exam, if we don’t think myopia is an issue?

Yes, definitely – even if you don’t wear glasses. It doesn’t mean that your child wouldn’t benefit already from a low prescription. They may not even know that they don’t have optimal vision until they are examined.
