Myopia Control


Welcome to Our Myopia Control Program!

Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a common refractive error that affects millions of people worldwide. While glasses and contact lenses can help correct vision, they don’t address the underlying issue of myopia progression. That’s where our myopia control program comes in.

At Mitchell Family Eye Care, we understand the importance of managing myopia, especially in children. Our comprehensive myopia control program is designed to slow down the progression of myopia and reduce the risk of associated eye diseases later in life.


What is Myopia Control?

Myopia control refers to various treatments and strategies aimed at slowing down the progression of myopia. These treatments not only help in reducing the need for stronger prescriptions but also lower the risk of developing sight-threatening conditions associated with high myopia, such as retinal detachment, glaucoma, and macular degeneration.


Our Myopia Control Solutions

We offer a range of myopia control solutions tailored to meet the unique needs of each patient. Our experienced optometrists will conduct a thorough eye examination to determine the most suitable treatment option for you or your child. Some of the myopia control options we offer include:

  1. Orthokeratology (Ortho-K): Ortho-K lenses are worn overnight to gently reshape the cornea while you sleep, providing clear vision during the day without the need for glasses or contacts.
  2. MiSight® 1 Day Contact Lenses: These soft contact lenses are specifically designed for myopia control in children. By slowing down the elongation of the eye, MiSight® lenses help reduce myopia progression.
  3. Atropine Eye Drops: Low-dose atropine eye drops have been shown to effectively slow down the progression of myopia in children. Our optometrists will determine the appropriate concentration for your child’s needs.
  4. Multifocal Eyeglasses: Multifocal lenses can help reduce eye strain and slow down myopia progression in some patients.
